It was a cold and dreary late December day and not a bird was stirring not even a titmouse. It was still a wonderful walk with a nice boardwalk and trees and waterfront views.

In addition to a hard packed dirt trail circling Beaver Lake, the Bird Sanctuary has very nice decking and boardwalks through the Sanctuary. The local Audubon bird club is always improving this area.

I went in the winter, so there weren't too many birds around. It was a nice little stroll outside on a wooden walkway for a warmer winter day. It is not too long of a walk.
