There is always something exciting happening
at the Norman Bird Sanctuary!
With over 300 acres and seven miles of hiking trails, there is plenty to see at all times of the year! You can bring your binoculars and go for a walk along our well-maintained trails. You will be sure to see a variety of local and migratory birds, depending on the season. Check out our list of recent sightings on the Bird Droppings page.
