What Birds Will We See?

Since Chicopee Lake is one of the premier birding spots in northeast Georgia, we expect to see a wide variety of both resident birds and winter migrants including ducks, herons, raptors, sparrows, woodpeckers and more.

This local birding hike is a seasonal public education program provided by Elachee Nature Science Center.
