Berwick Walking Trail

The Berwick Walking Trail traverses bottomland hardwood forest, open fields, and a network of canals. The dominant woodlands are filled during the spring and summer months with Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Red-bellied and Downy woodpeckers, Loggerhead Shrike, White-eyed Vireo, Fish Crow, Blue Jay, Carolina Chickadee, Carolina Wren, Brown Thrasher,and Northern Cardinal. During fall migration, look for Eastern Kingbird, Gray Catbird, Swainson’s, Wood and Gray-cheeked thrushes as well as Summer and Scarlet tanagers. In winter, look for Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Hermit Thrush, American Robin, Cedar Waxwing, and Orange-crowned and Yellow-rumped warblers. Search along the canal edges for Sora, House Wren, and Common Yellowthroat, along with Swamp and Lincoln’s sparrows. Follow the levees along the canals to a large open field where American Kestrel, Tree Swallow, and Eastern Meadowlark, along with other opencountry sparrows and blackbirds, may be found.
