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.
