Birding - All Green Points

The Sylamore area is a major stopping point for many migrating bird species. This is also a major over-winter area for large flocks of song birds. Migrating hawks, osprey, loons, bald eagles, gulls, pelicans, geese, crane, heron, several species of ducks, and the list goes on. We've seen or heard all of them here.

It helps to be here at the right time of year, which is October through January for the fall migrations, and then again in late April, May, and early June for the spring migrations.

The area has a diverse range of woodpecker species and many of the common songbirds and some warblers. Wild turkey are common, as are several hawks, vultures, and falcon.

There are so many places to bird it's best to pick your spot by Eco land type. Pine stands? Hardwoods? Water?

Pine Groves - The largest pine stands are at Optimus at Point 13. There are plenty of old logging roads on public lands to walk and listen. You'll also find pine stands along Hwy 341 between Points 37 and 40. You'll see the old logging roads where you can walk. Look for the little driveway aprons.

Hardwood Stands - These are almost everywhere. Just pick any of the roads in green on our map and you'll find hardwoods. Drive the back country roads, find an old logging road, and walk it.

Rivers - There's several rivers, creeks, and the lake to choose from. For a major river waterway your choice is Points 38 and 13. There are several duck flocks on the river most of the winter and early spring. The river bottoms hold several large fields separated by bamboo stands (cane breaks).
