Walden

0

The county seat and largest town, Walden is home to a few birds that can be hard to find elsewhere in Jackson County, including Eurasian Collared-Dove. The trees in town can have migrants in season. Hummingbird feeders can attract four species in late summer, and rosy-finches occasionally visit feeders here in winter. This town is also the best (read: ‘only’) place to find good service and hotels on this trail, and an excellent base for exploring the area.
