The backwoods. backroads. backwaters. of Clearfield County are full of great places to spot the local fowl. You can visit the class room at Parker Dam State Park and learn about the birds you will see walking Sauder's Trail or peering over Parker Lake. The Clearfield to Grampian Rail Trail is a great place to bird watch  as it winds through the PA hardwoods it also follows along the West Branch Susquehanna River. The Curwensville Lake Recreation Area is a great place to spot migratory water fowl as well as song birds nesting along the trails. Several Bald Eagle also call the CLRA home. Shagger's Inn, a shallow water impoundment, contains one of the few nesting areas in PA for Osprey. Waterfowl is common in spring and fall. The surrounding Moshannon State Forest is an excellent place to find Scarlet Tanager, Purple Finch and Wild Turkey. Along with these locations are over 40,000 acres of state game lands, hundreds of miles of trails and two natural areas. Birders are welcome and we would love to  see your photos and share your stories on our facebook page.!/VisitClearfieldCounty?fref=ts
