Birding-IconView Birding Guide.

The Creole Nature Trail is annually home to more than 400 bird species, making it one of the Top 10 Birding/Birdwatch Destinations in the country. Year-round you will be treated to a seemingly endless array of raptors, waterfowl, wading birds and shorebirds residing in this lush environment. To experience our exotic birds and waterfowl up close, try Grosse Savanne Eco-Tours.
