EAGLE LAKE/MUSTIN BOTTOMS WMA - just south of shelby forest

Let's go explore a hot birding area just north of Memphis and just south of Meeman Shelby Forest SP - so it is close by...  plan on walking 5-8 miles on flat land...  if you have plant/animal id books bring them along and lets explore - bring bincos and cameras...  we will also do some trail mnt/cleanup so bring a garbage bag and gloves...

We will explore birds, plants, amphibians, snakes, there are a few wild flowers, and mammals, etc...

    the WMA was closed (turkey hunting season had started) so we did the woodland trail at shelby forest then ventured out on unblazed trails beyond the dam. We found a nice red eared slider just out of the lake and played with him a bit. Saw trillium, bluets, butterweed, the bluebonnets were still not in full bloom, the buckeyes were trying to come out,
