Spring Bird Hike

Start Date:

8:30 a.m.

Lake James State Park and Campground

Warm southern winds are helping songbirds on their way to the nesting grounds and Lake James State Park is an important stopover for warblers, vireos, orioles, hummingbirds, swallows and a host of other birds. The Paddy’s Creek day use area is an excellent place to look for these tiny travelers, as well as the many species that reside year-round along the lakeshore. Ranger Jamie Cameron will have his trusty binoculars and field guide for this enjoyable 3/4-mile hike featuring several different habitat types in the park. Plan to meet in the Paddy’s Creek Area bathhouse breezeway for an 8:30 a.m. departure. Watch the weather forecast and dress appropriately.
