Yellow River - Birding

Birding or bird-watching is a big draw year round to Yellow River Marsh Preserve. Birding is a fun and inexpensive hobby enjoyed by all family members. All you need is a pair of sharp eyes and a good set of ears and you are on your way to exploring the preserve looking for the many varieties of birds that frequent the preserve. However a pair of binoculars, sunscreen, water and the proper birding clothing will make your birding experience even more enjoyable. Birding opportunities are available from the trail at the Dickerson City Rd parking area.
