Whitman Dam State Wildlife Area is six miles of marsh and slough from Merrick State Park north to the village of Buffalo. The southern part of this 2,173-acre property has areas where you can walk and sight lowland forest birds such as Black-billed Cockoos, woodpeckers and Prothonatary Warbles. Bald and Golden Eagles have also been seen along this stretch of the river. A three-mile dike stretching north from Lock and Dam #6 creates Spring Lake that draws record numbers of ducks and Tundra Swans in the spring and fall migration seasons. You can walk the dike to see huge rafts of Canvasbacks, Ring-neck ducks and Scaup.
