The Mobile-Tensaw Delta Wildlife Management Area has a variety of habitats for the birder to explore.  Located along the east bank of the Tensaw River is an 850- acre parcel comprised of flooded hardwood bottoms along the river to upland hardwoods and pines. Additionally, there is a lake and peripheral freshwater marsh. During the breeding season, common species include Red-shouldered Hawk, Barred Owl, Red-eyed Vireo, Prothonotary Warbler and Northern Parula. In the summer months, Swallow-tailed Kites may be spotted flying along the river banks just above tree line. Purchased by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as part of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway mitigation, this area is managed by the ADCNR Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division.
