Hannon Waterfowl Production Area

Habitat includes wet meadows and surrounding grassy uplands with 105 acres of water. Common summer residents include marsh and sedge wrens, upland sandpipers, bobolinks, dickcissels and a variety of native sparrows. This site has had good use by waterfowl when water is present and excellent use by sandhill cranes after a prescribed burn. There are several small ponds and a slough that runs through it on wet years, which is attractive to shorebirds such as Wilson’s snipe. Some years this area has seen heavy use by migrating sandhill cranes in March.
