Yesterday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in Atlanta, Georgia. I always enjoy visiting different botanical gardens but many times, they are so manicured that there are very few birds around (I love to see birds everywhere I go!). I was very happy to see that this botanical garden was very different!
We started our walk by taking the Kendeda Canopy Walk through Storza Woods. This area is one of the last remaining mature hardwood forest in the City of Atlanta and makes up nearly half of the 30 acre property that the botanical gardens is on. In just a short walk, it was very clear that this would be a great spot to see migrant birds during the spring and fall. I’ll have to come back in the spring with my binoculars and camera. This trail also took us by one of the most beautiful botanical sculptures in the whole garden!
As we continued around to all of the other exhibits, there continued to be birds everywhere. From a families of cardinals and Carolina Wrens to Chimney Swifts zipping around overhead, there were always birds around for me to look at!
Another part of botanical gardens that I loved were all of the animal sculptures. Here are a few of my favorites!
Have you ever visited the Atlanta Botanical Gardens? If so, what was your favorite part?
