Tuttle Marsh National Wildlife Area is located in Oscoda, Michigan, in the Huron-Manistee National Forest. It’s 5,000 acres of wetlands, woods and ponds with embankments and viewing areas. I visit Tuttle Marsh as often as possible and over the years I’ve seen: mink, white-tailed deer, bald eagles, green herons, blue-winged teal, trumpeter swans, mute swans, great blue herons, osprey, great horned owls – the list goes on. My trip to Tuttle Marsh last month didn’t disappoint. Nesting platforms have been built for the osprey, and there were active nests on the two platforms nearest the embankments. There were Canada geese and mute swans, both with little ones in tow, as well as a pair of bald eagles. The eagles even showed off their hunting skills – something I could watch all day long.
