HIlls Creek State Park Spring Bird Walks

Our annual spring bird walks at Hills Creek State Park (held every Saturday in April and May) will start up again this year on April 7, 8:00 AM. Meet at the park office.  Please note that the April bird walks are frequently cold and blustery, so please dress warmly. If the lake is free of ice, we can expect to see a variety of waterfowl, including diving ducks, grebes, and loons. Spotting scopes will be available if the birds are too far out in the lake. Bald eagles are almost always present, and we might see an osprey if the weather warms up. A few migratory land birds may also be present, but their numbers will be small until May. There are no fees, and birders of all levels or anyone just interested in birds are welcome to attend. No prior notification is required. Just show up.
