This marsh is also the home of the Canadian Division of Ducks Unlimited…Here a single Canada Goose is coming in for a landing in the open field next to the marsh. Migration is a miracle. By land, air and water, millions of birds do it, in time with the seasons. Most of our birds, approximately 90%, do not spend the winter here. They migrate farther south, anywhere from the southern United States to the south tip of South America.

Oak Hammock Marsh is an important staging area for hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese and for many other species. It is a safe protected area for the birds to stop and eat, building up fat reserves before starting the next leg of their journey.
