Wildlife & Bird Watching

Bird Watching: Over 270 species of birds have been recorded in Greene County. Most of these are summer residents. Because of the highly visible activity of males singing, courtship behavior, and parents feeding noisy young, the nesting season is the best time to observe birds. Most birds begin nesting in the spring (April, May and June): continue through the summer (July and August) and are finished by autumn.
