Birding is an activity that the entire family can partake in. It is fun, free and available everywhere and year-round!
The Trout Creek hiking trails are perfect for birding because there are tall trees and streams that attract all sorts of birds.
The Petoskey – Harbor Springs area is loaded with beautiful trails for all levels of hikers. All you need is a pair of binoculars and if you brought a bird book, that would come in handy.
Pileated Woodpeckers, Dark-Eyed Juncos & Blue Jays are some of the birds here in the winter. And we anxiously await the Hummingbirds, Scarlet Tanagers and others this spring!
