Wildlife at Duck Creek Conservation Area in Bollinger County, Missouri

Duck Creek Conservation Area is located nine miles north of Puxico on Highway 51 in Stoddard, Bollinger and Wayne counties.  The 6,318-acre area has a wide variety of habitat types that support a diversity of plant and animal species, some of which are unique to Missouri.  During the winter Duck Creek Conservation Area is a great place to enjoy unique wildlife and take beautiful photos.

A Muskrat....I have never seen one before!  Amazing Fellow!

He went for a Swim....brrrrr

He was a happy little fellow!



I liked this Duck, he was cool! 

They are amazing to watch in take off!
