In Warroad, the arrival of spring is not just marked by the thawing of ice, but by the return of our feathered friends.

From the majestic honking of geese reclaiming their nesting grounds to the cheerful melodies of migratory birds filling the air, the landscape comes alive with the vibrant energy of renewal. Even amid lingering ice, the resilient spirit of nature prevails as geese gracefully navigate icy rivers and wander through yards, signaling the changing of the seasons.

Birding enthusiasts come from all over the country to Warroad to complete their birding checklists.  The Lake of the Woods shoreline is easily scanned from atop the observation tower or the drive up nature viewing area located on the north side of the Warroad Point Park.

The Lake of the Woods area is home to almost 300 species of birds, including

  • Water species such as loons
  • Canadian geese
  • Tundra swans
  • Herons
  • White pelicans
  • Piping plovers
  • Terns
  • Mallards & more

As each day unfolds, the chorus of chirping birds grows richer, echoing the optimism that accompanies the arrival of spring. The sight of a robin, heralding the season’s change, fills hearts with hope and reassurance that winter’s grasp is loosening. Despite an occasional spring snowstorm, the resilience of nature prevails.
