The Stick Marsh is a popular site for bird watchers because of easy viewing from shore. These two small islands are important sites for nesting of roseate spoonbills and tricolored herons.  Birds use the site throughout the winter for roosting.  The islands are closed year-round, and the in-water buffer is posted closed seasonally to protect nesting birds.
