Black Diamond Mines - Birds

Also available: Flowers/Plants | Butterflies

Black Diamond Mines: a good time to visit is in the spring when the wild flowers are in bloom and the birds are out and about in numbers. Look around on your drive up to the parking lot. Many birds can be seen right in the picnic area and located by listening for their songs / calls. Woodpeckers often tap on the trunks of trees when looking for food or building a nest hole. The following pictures were all taken at Black Diamond Mine. Click on a picture for a large version.
