Bird Watching

There are over 120 species seen in the Natural Areas with more than 60 species of warblers and waterfowl pass through each year on their semi-annual journey. A visit to the Bird Viewing Station (Blird Blind) in Bachelor Preserve is especially rewarding any time of the year. The blind was created to allow people to see birds up-close and in their natural habitat. The area is shaded and has benches to allow for some great bird-watching views. 

The blind is open from sunrise to sunset and is located across from the DeWitt House off of route 73 and can be seen on the trail map.


The Bird Blind is located just north of Dewitt Log House. Parking is available in the DeWitt Cabin Parking Lot.
