Tuttle Marsh Wildlife Area [Wildlife Viewing Area] - U.S. Forest Service  Phone: (989) 739-0728.  Closest Towns: Tawas City, East Tawas, Oscoda.  From Tawas City, take Monument Road north about one mile to Wilber Road. Turn right and proceed 3 miles to the stop sign at Galion Road. Turn right and drive 1/2 mile to Sherman Road. Turn left and continue 1.5 miles to May Road. Turn right and drive 1/2 mile to Brooks Road. Turn right and follow the winding gravel road for 1/5 mile to Tuttle Marsh Road on the left. Tuttle Marsh Road is about 4 miles long.   A 400-acre impoundment is at the heart of this site, which is surrounded by hundreds more acres of seasonally flooded wetlands. Tuttle Marsh has no facilities or developments, but visitors are encouraged to use the wetland dike as a hiking trail.  Thousands of waterfowl use this flooding as a feeding and resting location during their spring and fall migrations. Spring is the best time to view waterfowl here because water levels are high and ducks are in their colorful breeding plumage. Teal, goldeneyes, mallards, and Canada geese are the most commonly seen species. During summer, much of the wetland may dry up, but the impoundment still attracts herons, American bitterns, and the many shorebirds that come to feed in the exposed mud flats. During winter, large herds of deer may congregate here.
