The wide range of habitat provides for an excellent diversity of birdlife. The Hallaway Hill Trail and Overlook provide a panoramic view of the park and an excellent place to observe birds. Water­ fowl, gulls and terns congregate on the lakes in the spring and fall. Common loons are found in good numbers on the larger lakes. Of special interest is the presence of red-shouldered hawks in the woodlands. Twenty-five species of neotropical migrant warblers have been re­ corded in the park and in August 2005, a Williamsons sapsucker was recorded near the Lake Lida campground. Season and Abundance Key The seasons in the checklist are defined as follows: Sp (Spring) = March, April, May Su (Summer) = June, July Fa (Fall) = August, September, October, November Wi (Winter) = December, January, February Abundance codes are defined as follows: C = Common — present, relatively easy to find U = Uncommon — observed, may be difficult to find O = Occasional — may or may not be present in any year R = Rare — has occurred at least once, may or may not be expected to recur The names and taxonomic arrangement of species follows that of the Checklist of the Birds of Minnesota (January, 2001), prepared by the Minnesota Ornithological Records Committee. This checklist contains the names of all birds that have been documented in the park by reliable observers. It was constructed by Robert B. Janssen, Jerry Bonkoski, and the MN DNR-Division of Parks & Recreation using observations of the above, park staff and other observers, as well as Minnesota Ornithologist’s Union records and data contained in research reports.
