Bird Watching!

If you’re lucky, you may see the endangered piping plover making their home near the beach. Zippel Bay park is one of the top birding parks in Minnesota. Located on the southern shore of Lake of the Woods, this park encompasses a wide variety of bird habitats. In addition to the endangered piping plover, you can find ducks, pelicans, cormorants, sandhill cranes, herrings, Ring-billed, Franklin’s and Bonaparte’s Gulls. Bald eagles nest near the park and osprey can be seen along the lake.  You can hear Sandhill cranes almost every day from spring to fall as they nest in the park.
