Picture yourself canoeing or kayaking to a beautiful island in the Chippewa River where time seems to stand still and birds call from oak groves and grassy prairies. This is what you will find when you visit the 420-acre Caryville Savanna State Natural Area located on Brush Island. Look for Orchard Orioles, Gray Catbirds, and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers in the oak barrens, and keep an eye out for Clay-colored and Lark Sparrows in the prairies. When exploring the floodplain forest, look for Barred Owls, Whip-poor-wills, Red-headed Woodpeckers and Eastern Phoebes.
