Many species of migratory birds winter at the hotel. From October through April, we regularly see Summer Tanagers, Baltimore Orioles, Streak-backed Orioles and many warblers.

Based on multiple sightings by ourselves and hotel guests, we have compiled a comprehensive bird list of over 130 species encountered on the estate.

We appreciate and thank our photographer guests, Anke Lichtenberg and Peter Stoks, Larry Wilkinson and Cathy Doig for their contributions.

Special thanks to Dan and Kay Wade, our dear friends and extraordinary naturalists, for many bird pictures.
