Tips for Birding

The Great Swamp Management Area contains several miles of trails that wind through fields and mixed forests and around an impoundment. The area is a good place to find passerines during spring migration.

The trail that circles the impoundment travels through different habitats that attract a variety of birds. It is about a five-mile round-trip hike from the parking area.
