The Lagow Ranch is a working ranch with rice fields, plowed fields, pasture land, brackish marsh and a fresh water reservoir. This property is located between the main and East unit of Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge and has been maintained for many years to provide excellent habitat for wildlife. In the winter waterfowl abound and there should be some of them left in the spring. The reservoir has large patches of open water and Sea Cane which attracts water loving birds as well as songbirds migrating through the area.
Participants will meet at the ranch gate and will board a four-wheel drive vehicle with a customized trailer for carrying passengers for a short ride to the reservoir. We will then take a leisurely walk around the reservoir, birding as we go. Binoculars and scopes are encouraged.
Targets: Clapper Rails, King Rais, Sora, Purple Gallinule, Marsh Wren, Least Bittern, Seaside Sparrows, herons, egrets, waterfowl, Anhinga and “peeps.”
