Birding Events in Minnesota State Parks

Minnesota state parks are a haven for birds and birdwatchers alike. Bird habitats around Minnesota—and everywhere in the world—are declining, and as a result, so are many bird species and populations. The state parks provide and preserve a much-needed variety and diversity of habitats for birds. If you want to see birds in Minnesota, visit a state park!
