Beaver Creek Nature Preserve - Minnehaha County

Located on a creek this nature area has Burr Oak bluffs with prairie above, creek bottom woodlands below and a spring fed stream cutting through the middle. The creek bottom woodlands can be a excellent place to find Winter Wrens and Hermit Thrushes in migration as well as other migrants later in the spring. On the highlands Northern Goshawks have been found in winter. Beaver Creek supports nesting Great Horned Owls and Red-tailed Hawks which can be observed throughout there courtship.
