Birds and Birding at Valle Crucis Community Park

With its mosaic of habitat types–riparian forest, marsh, meadow and open field– the Valle Crucis Community Park supports a wide diversity of birds. We’re grateful to our partners at High Country Audubon Society for their work documenting birds of the Park. Around 150 species of birds have been observed at the Park and at least 30 species nest here. Below is a sample of bird species commonly seen in the Park. More information on each species is available by following the link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website.
