FEATHER

Garden Island is host to a wide range of Birds, many making their seasonal appearance from early May.

While some are very evident such as Ducks, Raptors & Songbirds; others like the GrouseGreat Blue HeronKingfishers, Flickers and Woodpeckers take keener eyes to spot.  You will probably hear the Sandhill Cranes crooning at dawn and the Loons at dusk.

The list to date (excluding waterfowl for which we have too many to list) also includes the following: Tennessee Warblers, Nuthatches, Sandhill Cranes, Redstarts, Yellow Warblers, Pileated & Hairy Woodpeckers, Palm Warblers, Song Sparrows, Swallows, Chickadees, Humming-Birds, Orioles, Blue Jays, Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Sharp-Shinned Hawks, Northern Goshawks, and incredibly, a single sighting of a solitary (& presumably very lost) Pelican.
