Friends of a feather flock together

With its plentiful forests, fields and wetlands, the Parkland has long been a haven for a multitude of bird species. The Swan Valley is at the crossroads for northern and southern species of birds, as well as eastern and western birds. A great variety of habitat and species makes the Valley a prime location for birding. Areas of most activity for birding are trails in the mountains, as well as local bird feeders, wetlands and a  100-box nesting trail. Expect to view: peeps, waders,doublers, divers, golden­ winged  warblers, and perhaps even an albino red­ tailed hawk.
