During spring migration Mt Tabor suddenly swarms with birders hoping to arrive on a morning when the trees are literally dripping with warblers.
The maples and Douglas Firs can attract flocks of Townsend’s, Yellow-rumped, Orange-crowned, and Black-throated Gray Warblers foraging for insects as they head on to breeding grounds. Resident hummingbirds guard their territories, Band-tailed Pigeons nest in the treetops and even the occasional Townsend’s Solitaire has been seen here. Walking conditions are steep at times but are mostly on paved paths. Paved sections are wheelchair accessible but steep, dirt trails are not accessible. Possible restroom but you know those Portland Parks restrooms…..questionable.
