Offering the perfect location for a holiday of wildlife viewing and bird watching, our cabin is nestled in the Little Niangua River valley in south central Missouri, on the edge of the Ozark plateau. Our 25 acres of oak hickory woodland in the limestone hills offer cover to many warm weather birds such as warblers, vireos, thrushes, flycatchers, three species of owls, and the common perching birds.
Birds & Wildlife
Four-footed wildlife neighbors include deer, bobcat, coyote, fox, armadillo, squirrel, rabbit and many smaller inhabitants.
The river hosts many colorful aquatic species including invertebrates, fish, some reptiles and amphibians. One endangered fish species that you will only find in several Ozark streams is the Niangua Darter, a beautiful small fish that really does ‘dart’ along the stream bottom, along with several other species of darter as well as bass, catfish, shad, bluegill and perch.
