Winter Bird Hike

It may come as a surprise to some, but birdwatching during the winter can be excellent. With all of the winged visitors from the north, we might see as many as 30 different types of birds in little more than an hour. Join Ranger Jamie Cameron for a walk around the Paddy’s Creek Area to see what kind of surprises we might turn up. Meet at the Paddy’s Creek Area bathhouse breezeway at 9 a.m.
