Harrisville State Park - Birding Site

Site along the Sunrise Coast Birding Trail

Approximately 13 miles north of Oscoda on US 23 is Harrisville State Park. This 107-acre park is a mecca for bird watchers. The heavily wooded pine and cedar habitat, Cedar Run Nature Trail, hosts a variety of warblers, nuthatches, woodpeckers, wrens, thrushes, sparrows, and hawks.  A Merlin has nested inside the park near the camping area.  Many shoreline species roam the Lake Huron beach which borders the park on the east end. Downtown Harrisville is within easy walking or driving distance.
