Blackhawk Springs FP: (MAP)   SE Winnebago Co.    From I-90 and US 20 exit (mm 60.5) exit to Harrison Ave.  Turn west on Harrison Ave. to Mulford Rd.  Turn left (S) on Mulford Rd. to the entrance to Blackhawk Springs.  This area is very good in migration.  Winter and Carolina Wrens in winter.  The trail system goes E back to Perryville Rd, then loops S across the Kishwaukee River and heads back W.  There is another parking lot just S of the Kishwaukee River on Perryville Rd. with a foot bridge the crosses the river back to the N into the restored prairie area.
