Fall Creek Falls State Park

Birding

From the wide, panoramic views, such as famous Buzzard’s Roost, migratory broad-winged and other “buzzard hawks” soar with resident turkey and black vultures, frequently at eye level. The bluff-tops also offer a peek into the canopy, with close looks at vibrantly colored warblers, vireos, and other neotropical migrants from mid-March to October. Year-round residents include barred owls, red-headed woodpeckers, Cooper’s hawks, and white-breasted nuthatches. Fall Creek Lake provides viewing opportunities in the winter for a variety of transient ducks, loons, and bald eagles. For more park and nearby birding locations, view flyer.
