Au Train Songbird Trail
Located about 3 mile south of M-28 and the Community of Au Train, The self interpreted Songbird trail may be reached by following the Au Train campground signs along H-03. Bird watchers are able to check out a tape recorder bird guide, and binoculars from the grocery store in Au Train. The tape will guide you through the trail and describe some 20 common songbirds found along the trail. The birds song will be on the tape to help you with identification. Often when you play the tape the bird will answer you.
The Trail's many species of songbirds are some of the last to arrive. By the end of May, birdwatchers will be delighted with the variety of birds.
The best time to listen for birds is late May to early June. In the fall, peak waterfowl migration occurs from the end of September to mid-October. Loons are some of the earliest to leave in September.
By the end of October most migratory birds have left the Refuge for their wintering grounds. Common species include Canada geese, hooded mergansers, mallards, black ducks, ring-necked ducks, wood ducks and sand hill cranes.
For the shear beauty and enjoyment of this easy to hike trail, waterfowl sightings are an added outdoor experience everyone should encounter during your visit- even if bird watching isn't quite your cup of tea.
You'll find on this trail beautiful wilderness surroundings and possibly some very interesting encounters.
The birds featured will be,
Common Yellow Throat
Black Throated Green Warbler
White Breasted Nuthatch Rose-Breasted
