Giese Road

This site is a restricted area and is currently not open to the public. This road provides a variety of habitats in a short distance. There are small woodlots, one with a small water course, pockets of grasslands and much scrubland.

In winter the first woodlot on the east end of the road is worth checking due to the small water course (Indian Creek) running through it. Possibilities include Eastern Bluebird, American Robin, Cedar Waxwing, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Rusty Blackbird and Brown-headed Cowbird.

In the breeding season the scrubland areas, particularly those with mulberry trees can be a great place to check for breeding species such as Brown Thrasher, Gray Catbird, Cedar Waxwing, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Indigo Bunting, Orchard Oriole and Baltimore Oriole.

Swamp Sparrows have nested here.

Late fall and early winter these areas can also be checked for Northern Shrike and Purple Finch. The later can be found feeding on Box Elder seeds.
