MSS Bird - Mockingbird LbNA # 29299
|Placed Date||Mar 12 2007|
Take I-49 south toward the gulf and continue south of the town of Wiggins, MS. The turn into the hiking trail parking lot is just south of a row of large trees arching over the south-bound lanes like they would over the driveway of a plantation; the turn is also just north of Lakeview Road. If you get to the Saucier city limit sign (while going south), you missed the turn.
Park and enter the hiking trail, keeping an eye out for snakes (I was warned, but did not see any). Follow the clue for “MS State Symbols – Waterfowl – Wood Duck” to locate it, as the search for the Mockingbird starts there. From the Wood Duck’s home at the swampy pond, continue down the path to a double-trunk tree on the right with a lot of small branches behind it. The tree has something pink and white on its bark about 4’ high. The box is at the base of this tree.
