On the Flow, paddlers should see lots of birds!
Common Loon, Mallard, Hooded and Common Mergansers, Osprey, Herring Gull, and-both of them noisy birds, Pied-billed Grebe and Wilson's Snipe. Red-tailed Hawks and Common Ravens nest to the northwest of the Flow and are seen using the air currents there. On the river, it's approximately three miles to the lean-to on the right bank of the river. Paddle a little farther before running into beaver dams and small rapids. Along the river are hardwoods on the left and a swamp/bog on the right which provides the chance to see and hear many different birds. Often Olive-sided Flycatchers, Canada Jays, and Boreal Chickadees are right overhead. The Jays frequent the lean-to where they find plenty of hand-outs. Woodland warblers are common on the left, and Northern Parula and Palm Warblers are sometimes seen.
