1) What It's Like

It's one of several roads in Hernando County of rolling hills over mostly pasture land where you tend to see a lot of birds.

2) Kinds of Birds

Bluebirds, meadowlarks, and just odd random ones like buntings. Plus - lots of swallow tailed kites and raptors in general. Lots of 1st time seen encounters for us here and Powerline road nearby.

3) Wildlife

It's rural but not so forested in this area. The only thing I can recall seeing besides birds is a Sherman's Fox Squirrel. That and plenty of livestock.

4) Amenities

None. A few gas stations around.

5) Directions

I don't know a right way - look at map.

6) Time Requirements

You could just drive through but I'd suggest finding a spot to pull over and tune in. We would rarely see anything if we didn't give it at 20 minutes on foot.


The most impressive stop through here was a day when the swallow tailed kites were in huge numbers. There were one or two dozen on one tree. But also if you stopped and looked at all the rolling hills you'd see quite a few more sweeping down along those valleys (not quite the term) and popping up - we couldn't really count them because they were all around but at least 30. Then if you listen you can usually hear meadowlarks. If you look close at the grasses you'll often see them pop up or hop on a fence post.
