Bird Watching

Whether you’re a long-time bird watcher or a beginner, our guests regard Glenlaurel as a premier spot to bird watch; discovering an abundance of feathered friends. With over 50 species sighted on premise, including two bald eagles, you can spend the entire day watching the birds on Glenlaurel’s Estate.

The depth of our gorge and the profusion of ferns & wildflowers make this an ideal spot see all the varieties you don’t normally see elsewhere. Gather your binoculars, camera, and field guide for a day far from ordinary.

The Hocking Valley Birding Trail organization consists of a group of birders, biologists, and naturalists who promote conservation so future generations may enjoy Ohio’s Hocking Valley wildlife. Each year, the International Migratory Bird week is held to celebrate the return of migratory birds with hikes and special programs.

Lake Logan State Park has also been known as a bird watcher’s paradise. From eagles, hawks, and blue heron, it’s different each day. Paddle along in a kayak or canoe for an upclose view.
