• Juvenile Great Horned Owls

Many birds live in and around Crow Island Woods, or stop here during migration season to recharge during their long journeys.  Our birds range from the very large (Adult Great Horned Owls are often over two feet tall) to very small (Ruby-throated Hummingbirds weigh somewhere between a nickel and a quarter).  Some are relatively drab, but others are the brightest blue (Indigo Bunting), iridescent green (Hummingbird), or bright orange (Baltimore Oriole)!

Many birds migrate, so you’ll see different birds every time you come to Crow Island Woods.  Here’s a list of birds you might see during Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.
