Birding the Clear Lake Loop

Birders flock to the Clear Lake Loop because of its high saturation of desirable birds, along with rare birds like the endangered Whooping Crane. It’s also a great place to get started in birding because of the wide variety of bird species—ranging from wading birds, seabirds, and waterfowl to woodland and songbirds.


The Clear Lake Loop offers several different habitats for birders to explore, including marshes, woods, coastal wetlands, and high-grass prairies. These varied habitats provide a refuge for birds during spring and fall migrations, while other birds are present year-round.

Several world-class nature centers help you reconnect with nature, view wildlife, and enjoy exploring the great outdoors. Visit heron rookeries and be wowed by stunning egrets, ibis, and roseate spoonbills. Walk wooded trails and search for birds flitting between the treetops, and hide behind bird blinds and spy birds wading through marshes in search of a meal. Even driving the local roads you're likely to spot some head-turning birds.
