Detailed directions for birding Soddy Lake
The main attraction here is waterbirds and maybe shorebirds is habitat is present. Visit the parking areas on either side of Hwy 29 below and a gravel access area on the north side of the lake just on the east side of Hwy 29. If the water is low, there may be shorebirds. Scan for gulls in winter as well. Watch the sky for eagles!
