Souris River Bend Wildlife Management Area

Parks/Nature Details

Home to a variety of habitats, the Souris River Bend is a priority for any birder. Black-and-white Warblers, American Redstarts and Eastern Towhees reside in the valley slopes while Cooper’s Hawks, Black-billed Cuckoos, Flycatchers, Veerys, Vireos, Ovenbirds and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks all prefer the wooded uplands. The Least Flycatcher, Yellow-throated Vireo, Yellow Warbler and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers dwell along the riverbottom forest while the Clay-coloured Sparrow, Mourning Dove, Eastern Kingbird, Gray Catbird, Vesper Sparrow, American Goldfinch and Sharp-tailed Grouse inhabit the grasslands and thickets.
