Combs Park

Tips for Birding

Due to safety concerns, birders should avoid the trails back into the woods where there is a homeless camp. It is recommended to limit birding in the open areas along the lagoon, south field, boat ramp parking perimeter, and the stretch along the river south toward downtown.

About this Location

Combs Park, located in Hamilton on North B Street below Black Street Bridge, is a 20- to 25-acre park with a boat ramp at the back of the parking lot. There are two large fields on either side of the blacktop with walking paths. A group of 75 to 100-foot tall old growth trees attract raptors such as Eagles, Osprey, Kestrel and Peregrine Falcons, Red-tail, Cooper’s, and Sharp-shinned Hawks. The park has also hosted Black-crowned Night Herons, Great Blue, and Green Herons.
