Located near Vergennes in Addison County, the
Dead Creek Wildlife Refuge offers some of the finest birding
ground in the northeast. In the summer, visitors can kayak
or canoe down the Dead Creek and find numerous species of
heron, duck, owl and hawk.
It's in the fall and spring, however, that the
Refuge really offers something unique for birders. This is
when the thousands of snow and Canadian geese drop into the
Refuge's fields and marshes to rest during their yearly migration.
