Fall Migration Bird Hike

Lake James State Park – Paddy's Creek access 7321 N.C. 126 Nebo NC 28761

Bird migration is in full swing and it's time to go watch the spectacle.

The Paddy's Creek parking area offers just the right mix of open water, shoreline woods, and fields to see lots of species in a morning.

Join Ranger Cameron for an exciting morning. We'll start at 8:30 a.m. from the Paddy's Creek area bathhouse breezeway. Bring binoculars and a field guide if you have them.
