The Trempealeau Lakes State Wildlife Area is only 164 acres in size, but has a mix of habitats that draw a nice variety of animals and birds. The lakes are separated from the Mississippi River by marshes and are ringed with floodplain forests of maple and river birch. Canoe or hike the area to see cuckoos, Red-shouldered Hawk and Belted Kingfishers. Great Horned and Barred Owls nest here along with Pileated and Red-bellied Woodpeckers. In the winter, springs keep part of the lakes open for birds like the Great Blue Heron who sometimes winter here. Prairie restorations hold grassland birds including Song Sparrows, Common Yellowthroats and Willow Flycatchers. The lakes are host to many species of waterfowl.
