Both units of Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park are geographically comprised of upland bluff, north-facing rich slope, south-facing dry slope, stream corridor and cultivated habitat. The park attracts species that prefer edges and small woodlots.
During winter the park primarily hosts wandering woodlot songbird flocks consisting of common species such as Golden-crowned Kinglets, White-throated Sparrows and Slate-colored Juncos. The most interesting winter birds are finches. Purple Finch, Pine Siskin and Red-breasted Nuthatch can be viewed near the Birthplace Unit Visitor Center.
