While at the Crown Point Bird Conservation Area to observe the bird banding, we also enjoyed the great birding opportunities there. You didn't have to hike far to see and hear many many birds.
Over 180 bird species have been observed at the Crown Point BCA. Many of these are spring migrants, with 47 species of Neotropical migratory songbirds and 18 species of forest dwelling Neotropical migrants having been observed in spring.
We saw or heard 51 bird species during our day at Crown Point, including 3 new birds for me: Warbling Vireo, Blue Gray Gnatcatcher, and the Lincolns Sparrow.
