Birding Kiosk and Bird Garden

Come visit the Birding Kiosk and Bird Garden, located southwest of Coach's Crossing.

 

The Birding Kiosk is an information kiosk that beautifully illustrates the birds that trail users can see from Cass Park's Waterfront Trail. The 4-sided kiosk has panels of birds that reside year round in the park, those that breed in this area but winter south, and those that migrate through the park during the spring and fall seasons. A 4th panel tells the story of bird migration for selected species breed in or pass through the park. The research team included the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Steve Kress, and Dave Nutter. The panels were designed by Iron Design and the kiosk fabricated locally by Accufab. This project was funded by the Triad Foundation.

 

The Bird Garden is a small demonstration garden of native plants that provide food and shelter for birds.  In your trail travels, notice that long grass meadows are being allowed to grow around the bird garden and elsewhere along the trail. Letting these attractive long grasses grow will not only enhance the habitat for birds and butterflies, but also reduce mowing expenses and greenhouse gas emissions.
