Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge

Habitats at 48,000-acre Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge, bordering the Tombigbee National Forest, include fields, marshes, bottomland woodlands, and pinelands. From October through February, two large impoundments -- Bluff Lake (1,200 acres) and Loakfoma Lake (600 acres) -- attract large concentrations of wintering waterfowl, including Mallards, Gadwalls, Northern Shovelers, Northern Pintails, and Ruddy Ducks. During spring and early summer, Wood Ducks and Prothonotary Warblers nest in the fringing swamp forest, while summer ensures impressive populations of egrets and Wood Storks. Red-cockaded Woodpeckers nest in Noxubee’s pinelands. The Beaver Dam Trail and the Trail of Big Trees pass through low forests, providing opportunities to view the wetland wildlife. A 3-mile loop trail at the end of Keaton Tower Road traverses a wilderness area through a beech-magnolia forest, bottomland woodlands, and along a cypress oxbow lake.
