East Lake Park was the birthplace of Birmingham Audubon’s Urban Bird Habitat Initiative. Efforts to protect and enhance the heron rookery on the lake served as the catalyst for our extensive Urban Bird Habitat projects.

Birmingham Audubon's Urban Bird Habitat at East Lake Park signs feature the Birds of East Lake Park and Appalachian Birding Trails.
Enjoying East Lake Park.

Join Birmingham Audubon for a leisurely stroll around the park and its variety of habitats while we look for resident and migratory birds. Learn which birds can logically be found in which habitat. This event will provide information regarding Birmingham Audubon’s Eastlake Park Project, and the efforts we are making to protect the heron rookery on the island. After our walk we’ll visit the Avondale Brewing and/or Post Office Pies for refreshments and a snack.

We will meet at the Shepherd Senior Center Parking lot which is beside the East Lake Park Public Swimming Pool on 84th Street North. The parking lot is about 1 block north of First Avenue North. Please join us at 2 PM for a fun and educational afternoon. We will have binoculars to loan to those who need them.
