Swallow Cliffs South Parking Lot

The large pine trees around this parking lot has been a good place for Red Crossbill, White-winged Crossbill, Pine Siskin, Common Redpoll and Red-breasted Nuthatch in season. In the woods immediately to the east of the parking area, Summer Tanager has been a regular breeder. Along the Sag Valley Trail to the east, between where the two trails cut off to the south, Kentucky and Hooded Warblers have bred. Barred Owl and Pileated Woodpecker can be found here as well.
