Bring along your binoculars and Bird Book, because you are in for a treat if you take pretty much any of the trails in the Park. There are a variety of birds who live here year-round and many who stop by on their way to Canada or down south for the winter. There are Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, Chickadees, Pine Siskens, Purple Finches, Gold Finches, White Throated Sparrows, and on and on - be sure to pick up a bird book so you can identify the many varieties you'll see. However, be sure to go on a cooler day. On the hot days, the birds (like the people) tend to stay in the deep woods to keep cool. Also, early morning and evening are the best. My favorites are the Robins who sit up at the tippy tops of the pine trees at sun up and sun down and sing the most beautiful song of any bird I've ever heard. I've spent 25 years being serenaded by the Robins especially at sun set, and it never fails to make my own heart sing with them!
