Birdwatching

Lake O' the Pines is an excellent location for birdwatching.  The east Texas forest provides a varied habitat for a large number of species of birds.  

Many bird species can be seen in the trees and shurbs at the Lake O' Pines RV Marina & Inn.  Red-headed woodpeckers are fairly common as are Crested Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee, Blue Jays, Barm Swallows, Cardinals and, of course, Mockingbirds.  It is not unusual to see Eastern Phoebes, Downy Woodpeckers, House Finches, Dark Eyed Juncos, and Red Bellied Woodpeckers. 

There are many heavily wooded areas around the lake (near the RV park) where you may see Summer Tanagers, various species of warblers, and, if you are lucky, Painted Buntings. 

In the meadows and on the edge of the forest you may see Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, hawks of various species, Eastern Bluebirds, Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and Roadrunners.  

Near and on the water are many species of ducks, Great Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets, Killdeers, and, on occasion, Bald Eagles.

There are many other rarely seen species.  You never know what you might see which is why Lake O Pines RV Marina & Inn is a great destination for bird watchers.
