Arcola Boat Ramp
County: Hale | Attraction Types: Birding Trail, Outdoor Recreation
This overall area is often also known as the Hale County Bottoms. The fields here are full of Meadowlarks and Dickcissels, in warmer months. A few Lark Sparrows and Grasshopper Sparrows breed here. In winter months, look for sparrows (Savannah, Vesper, White-throated, Song, and White-crowned). Northern Bobwhites are common, and in the cooler months Northern Harriers are fairly common in the more extensive grassy fields. If birding at dawn or dusk, look for Short-eared Owls in in the same fields as the Harriers; Barn Owls course those fields and the marshes throughout the year, though they are highly nocturnal and thus seldom seen.
The primary access point is the Arcola Boat Ramp consisting of a small park, boat ramp, picnic table, and nature trail.
