Hummocks Trail

The Hummocks Trail is a wonderful pond-filled area for viewing migrating birds in the Mt. St. Helens area of the Central Cascades region.

Migration starts in April bringing uncommon Nashville Warblers and Lazuli Buntings to alders, along w/ Orange-crowned and Yellow-rumped Warblers and Common Yellowthroats; and Barrow’s Goldeneyes to pothole lakes. Next come Mountain Bluebirds, Violet-green Swallows, Song Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, Common Nighthawks, and Great Horned Owls. White-crowned Sparrows, Common Ravens, and American Kestrels stay on through fall. American Pipits, and Sharp-shinned and Cooper’s Hawks pass through in October.
