Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge
This 48,000-acre refuge consists primarily of bottomland and upland forests, and is home to a wide range of wildlife species. The Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge includes two major lakes: Bluff Lake, 800 acres in area, and Loakfoma Lake, at 400 acres. These and other water areas, such as four green-tree reservoirs, 16 small impoundments, and assorted wetland areas furnish habitat for bald eagles, wood storks, American alligators, and wintering waterfowl. Game species include quail, deer, and turkey, and hunting is allowed in certain areas. The endangered red-cockaded woodpecker can be found on the Refuge, and many neotropical birds live in the forests.
