Description: Periodically flooded private pasture in spring or after heavy rains. Private land site can be observed only from the county graveled road (Ave. S).
Habitat: Wet meadow/periodically flooded grass pasture, but recently with improved drainage tile, which is reducing the value of this site to shorebirds or other migrating waterbirds.
