Long Description:

I found several bird watching platforms scattered about the circular park, each an off-shoot from the main path. Each one has an interpretive which explains about the birds, their habitat and what visitors can expect to find and see. This bird-watching location is due east and 480 feet from the main building, as the crow flies. To access this first location, turn to the right at the main building and take the path. It will go straight, then curve to the right and then you will see an offshoot path to the left. Take it to this bird watching location

This modern, 34-acre park is easily accessed and has nice examples of different habitats and ecological communities. Visitors can experience fields, shrub/scrub, forest, marsh and river without having to trek far or manage rough terrain. The park has wide, level trails, observation platforms and blinds, good signage, rest rooms and safe parking. The observation platforms overlooking Rancocas Creek can provide interesting sightings in any season, from waterfowl in winter to jumping fish, basking turtles, and flycatchers hawking insects in warmer months. This park was designed specifically for birding and wildlife watching.

There are also a wonderful series of flora and fauna interpretives about the path and offshoot paths as well. This companion interpretive to this blind is wonderfully colorful with excellent pictures of local song birds. With each picture are descriptions and other important particulars about the bird. The top caption reads: A wide variety of songbirds exist in Burlington County including crows, jays, wrens, chickadees, warblers, vireos, flycatchers, swallows, thrushes, tanagers, orioles, blackbirds, sparrows, and finches. The most recognized songbirds are often those with the most melodious songs or brightest colors. Look and listen for these songbirds at Boundary Creek.
