LOTT’S CREEK CONSERVATION AREA
Edge Wade, 2017
20 acres Harrison Co.
DeLorme 14, F-4
MDC owned; for more information call 816-271-3100
Directions: From I-35 at Eagleville, go west into town,
then north on US 69 for 3.2 miles to a left turn (west) onto MO 46. Go west about 9 miles to Hatfield, continue
about 2 miles beyond Hatfield to a right (north) onto Rt. HH. Go .5 miles on Rt. HH to the small parking
area on the left.
ADA Information: There are no ADA compliant facilities. The trail through the area is natural
Visit/Species to Expect: There
have been few eBird reports submitted for this small area. It is the only public access into a fairly
large wooded tract in mostly pasture and hayfield agricultural land, so despite
its size, the site can give a good sampling of interior forest birds
representative of this portion of Missouri.
Spring (mid-May) passerine migration observation has shown Yellow-headed, Blue-headed, and Red-eyed Vireo, Swainson’s Thrush, Black-and-White, Tennessee, Nashville, Kentucky, Blackpoll, and Blackburnian warblers present.
Resident and summer nesting species reported include Northern
Flicker, and Red-bellied and Downy Woodpecker, Great-crested Flycatcher, and
Eastern Wood-Pewee, Wood Thrush, Summer and Scarlet Tanager and Baltimore
interest to birders: The non-loop natural surface
trail (about two-track wide in most places) heads west from the parking area,
generally paralleling the south boundary, then veers to runs along a low ridge
to bisect the area, ending at the west boundary. The trail provides good views into the woods,
much of which are slightly below the trail level.
