Birding in Murray County

Take a walk with nature and become a “birder”.

Did you know that birding is the number one sport in America? According to US Fish and Wildlife Service, there are currently 51.3 million birders in the United States, and this number continues to grow!

At the Lake Shetek State Park, birders have been really exited about seeing the Pileated woodpeckers who inhabit the park.  The woodpecker is easily recognized by their size of 16-19 inches, and their loud "laugh-like" call.     The State Park has a birding kit you can rent for a day.   The kit includes binoculars as well as a birding guide to help you find the numerous birds that inhabit the picturesque countryside.   

Lake Shetek State Park
163 State Park Road
Currie, MN 56123

WINTER HOURS:  Please call in advance if you want to rent a birding kit during the winter hours.
