The Bear Bluff Peatlands is a large and remote area of bogs, marshes, tamarack and spruce forests, upland oak forests and fens. The landscape is flat with scattered bluffs and mounds. Upland areas are a good place to find Black-billed Cuckoos and Scarlet Tanagers. In the marshes, look for Green-winged Teal and Hooded Mergansers. The fens and peatlands host White-throated Sparrows, and Hermit, Nashville and Connecticut Warblers. Common Raven and Golden-crowned Kinglets are found in the areas dominated with spruce trees. Golden Eagles winter here along with Sharp-tailed Grouse and Northern Saw-whet Owls
