Birding at Seward Park is always a unique experience. With a variety of habitats including old growth forest, open woodlands, and shorelines, an incredible diversity of birds are able to call this place home for at least a portion of the year. In fact, over 100 species have been spotted in Seward Park--40 of which are waterfowl!
A day in the park can introduce you to everything from Anna's hummingbirds (our year-round residents) to barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, and bald eagles. Come into the center and we'll tell you the best viewing areas for these species--including the location of our new eagle's nest!
Below you'll find a checklist of the birds of Seward Park, along with a map of their habitats. Hard copies, as well as bird field guides, can be found in our nature store.
