Camping and Birding

Spring is a great time for birding!

Many of our National Forest campgrounds are near migratory flyways.  It gives us opportunities to see birds that aren't commonly seen at other times of the year.

Spring is also when chicks are hatching and parents go to great lengths to protect and feed their young.  Get out and enjoy the wonders of birding in your area!
