Chippewa Park (Marsh) - 2465 City Road

This marshy area is great for observing waterfowl, but the American widgeon is the most promident duck here. These ducks are called aquatic grazers, meaning that they eat grasses in wet meadows and pastures. Every summer these waterfowl arrive in Thunder Bay to lay their 6-12 creamy white eggs in nests on the ground. It’s one of the noisiest ducks in our area. Listen for it! When you hear, “qua-ack,” you’ll know that it is a female.

 

Clue: Start at the pavilion and walk to the beach. Go north and follow the shoreline.
