Killarney offers miles and miles of wilderness for a field trip for you and your family or group to enjoy bird watching. Who could resist the scenic beauty of the La Cloche mountain range and the song of the birds. To name just a few we have robins, bluebirds, red-winged black birds, goldfinches, a variety of woodpeckers, eagles, loons and the great herons. We know there are more varieties of birds here in Killarney, but we could use some help identifying them.
You can also join the staff at Killarney Provincial Park when they undertake their annual bird count in December and their spring and summer loon count. To view more information about this click here.
