Bird watching at Clermont

With five miles of hiking trails spread out over 500-acres, Clermont State Historic Site is an incredible place for bird watching, no matter the season:

  • In the fall and winter, you'll see flocks of migrant geese and ducks.

  • The spring brings bright and colorful, forest-loving Magnolia Warblers, Black-throated Green Warblers, and Black-throated Blue Warblers who migrate up to Clermont from Central and Southern U.S.

  • In the summer, Eastern Towhees and Overbirds can be heard.
