Late Summer Birding - Huntsville Botanial Garden

During the warm days of August, an early morning walk on the Birding Trail provides views of colorful and interesting birds.  American Goldfinches feeding on sunflower seed heads in the Central Corridor. Eastern Bluebirds and Blue Grosbeaks feeding in the South Meadow while a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk, perched in the top of an Oak Tree, searches for rodents among the drying wildflowers.  In the North Meadow a family of Eastern Kingbirds forage for insects. On the shore of Little Smith Lake a Green Heron poises motionless trying to catch small fish. The Garden offers exciting bird viewing opportunities in addition to colorful floral displays on an early morning walk.
