A Natural Habitat Re-Created for Wildlife and Bird Watchers Alike

The Little Beaver Island marsh is a small, but important piece of the globally important Niagara River bird area. Each year dozens of species migrate, feed, and nest along the Niagara River at this and other locations such as east River Marsh, Motor Island, and Strawberry Island. Habitat improvement efforts undertaken by the New York Power Authority and New York State Parks, in conjunction with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, are helping to re-create habitat for dozens of bird species. The wetland and surrounding area is home to songbirds like Golden Crowned Kinglets and Baltimore Orioles as well as wetland birds such as Belted Kingfishers, Tundra Swans, and Great Blue Herons. The platform in the middle of the wetland is intended for Osprey to perch and nest on.
