Join Us for Birding Getaways

March 15, 2017

Lake of the Ozarks offers amazing birding adventures! The natural watery habitat is a permanent or temporary home to a dazzling display of species. Great blue herons, American goldfinches, hawks, ruby-throated hummingbirds, belted kingfishers and turkey vultures are only a few of the many varieties that thrive here.


Bald eagles journey from the Great Lakes and make their home here from October until mid-to-late March, and other migrating species include golden eagles, trumpeter swans, Canadian geese, and double-crested cormorants. Magnificent white pelicans have been spied both during their migratory flight and at other times, stirring speculation that this may soon be their permanent home.


At Lake of the Ozarks, virtually any outdoor space is an ideal birding site, but Ha Ha Tonka State Park, Lake of the Ozarks State Park, and the Saline Valley Conservation Area provide easy access to spotting these species in their natural habitat. Bonuses of wildflowers, blooming trees, a variety of ferns, and other verdant plant life are particularly rewarding for springtime visitors, along with an abundance of quail and wild turkeys.
