Birding AT Hoffler Creek

The preserve provides abundant food and shelter to an astounding variety of birds, both resident and migratory. They are attracted to one or more of our five distinct habitats: tidal wetlands, riparian forest, creek and bay, wildflower meadow, and brackish lake.


Bald eagles nest in the forest and Eastern bluebirds rear young in the nesting boxes in the meadow.

Waterfowl dive in the lake, and herons wade in the salt marsh. All the while, ospreys, hawks, and falcons fly in from the Bay to search for easy prey. Whatever the season, birdsongs fill the air.

Download our birding checklist! The data represented in this checklist is based on at least one survey at the preserve each month for five years. An X indicates the species was observed at least once that season.
