The Eastern Bluebird sure does brighten up the winter landscape! Look for Bluebirds, Downy Woodpeckers, Tree Sparrows, and many other feathered species at Fort Larned during the 2016 Great Backyard Bird Count.

We'll be hosting a nature program and birding hike to support this annual event. Meet at the Visitor Center for a program on Birds of the Fort followed by a bird count led by Park Ranger Barry Jones from Quivira National Wildlife Refuge.
