There is a good observation spot so you can see this large colony of great cormorants, and possibly some herons. They are still fairly far away but do fly overhead and you certainly sense how many there are. There are a couple of interesting information boards.

A 10 minute stop to hike up to the platform which overlooks the acres of stripped old forest is a good lesson in what happens in nature when there is an over population of a species. In this case the excessive number of cormorants and their feces is/has killed this forest. This is not a pretty site, but a good lesson in carrying capacity.

Well, at least we saw a very cute fox! There was not a bird in sight!

There was a lot of dead trees, but my guess is that you have to time it for early morning or late evening...

Twe just stopped here on the way to hill of witches and it was just not that impressive to see an area of the forest destroyed by bird poo. There were some birds flying around and bunch of nest. Unless you are a burd enthusiast I don't think you are missing much. But if you are cycling from Juodkrante to Nida (which is really nice ride) might as well check this out.

Useless to argue "is it worth seeing?". It is a colony of herons and cormorans. They nest here, and since their excrements are acidic, nothing grows below their nests. Simple as that.
It is on the main road, so - you can spend 10 mins and then drive further to Nida.
Funniest part about all this - reaction of people. Who state that "we need to regulate their population", "there's no more fish in the lagoon because of these birds" (of course not because of 60 years mindless overfishing) :). C'mon - these birds exist for million years and nature managed to regulate their numbers without our help.

I visit Juodkrantė quite often and seen a lot of the bird colony. I must say, I cannot admire it at all it is grotesque with all that dead forest, bad smell and noise (especially in spring). Cormorants are rapidly increasing of late, more and more forest is damaged. And, having in mind that this is almost the only patch of old forest in the Curonian spit, the damage is irreplaceable. I am really not sure whether allowing population of cormorants to increase is a good idea.

A very nice stop and viewing platform for cormorant watching. The colony is large and you can see how they have affected the nature nearby.

One of 5 best attraction in Neringa. You need just 10-15minutes to visit it. The Bird season is from April to August middle. But you can check area hall year.

I was visiting this Hill twice, very impressive. There are currently around 2000 Big cormorant pairs and 500 heron pairs. It is easy to find the location of the colony, because the trees there are all absolutely naked and dead. Each cormorant eats 400 gr fish / day, so not only the foresters are unhappy by this invasion but also the fishermen blame cormorants for the reduced catches. Be careful with the stairs, to the Hill, these are very poor quality stairs.
