OVERTON/PUTNAM COUNTIES (1,067) - This property is in cropland and pasture on its south half, and oak forest and mesic forest on its north half.  A 50 acre lake is situated on within the southern portion of the property while a creek and three tributaries flow north and northeast out of the property.  The tract’s habitats support wintering and resident wildlife species including white-tailed deer, wild boar, ring-necked duck and sandhill crane, whose sign or presence were observed during an inventory of species in December 2018. Also spotted, a bald eagle that was observed hunting waterfowl over the lake. A manager of the farm says it is seen almost daily and occasionally with its mate.
