The cerulean warbler, a summer resident of the park’s mixed hardwood forests is uncommon across most of Tennessee but is a common breeder at this park. The best opportunity for viewing this canopy top species is from the observation tower at the visitor’s center. Birding can result in sightings of numerous songbirds, including scarlet and summer tanagers. On the peninsula below the cabins, transient waterfowl may be spotted as well as bald eagles and osprey.
