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 8:30am departure. Watch the weather forecast and dress appropriately.
