Birding can be enjoyed year ‘round at Chimney Rock, and the ample viewsheds provided by leafless trees during our cooler months are an excellent time to check out our feathered friends. Grab your binoculars and a field guide and follow a Park naturalist to see which birds have stuck close to Chimney Rock for the winter season. Dress appropriately for the weather, wear comfortable hiking shoes and bring water. Space is limited to 15, and advance registration is required, so call 800-277-9611 today to reserve your spot! Winter Birding is part of our Naturalist Niche series.
