Come learn about and see photos of the many colorful warblers, orioles, grosbeaks, raptors, ducks, and other species that visit and even depend on the park for their survival. Also, learn about why bird watching is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the country and how much fun this lifelong learning pursuit can be.
