Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park may be nestled within an urban area, but there is no shortage of fascinating wildlife to discover here! Because of its location between two environmental regions, Ocmulgee is home to a diverse community of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and more. Over 170 species of birds have been observed at Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park, making the park a wonderful place for birders to explore. At the Clay Pond wildlife viewing area, wetland birds and wildlife abound. A keen eye might spot turtles or even an alligator sunning on a log. White-tailed deer are often spotted browsing in the woods and clearings, but many other mammals call Ocmulgee Mounds home as well.
