View Daly - Warbler Trail in a larger map
For directions to the park go to Daly Point Nature Reserve.
The Warbler Trail is a boardwalk that provides almost a complete loop. The loop goes through a mostly wet area with smaller hardwoods and alders enveloping the trail. Along the boardwalk are signs showing the animals, frogs and birds that you might find in the area. There are also several bird feeders handing from the trees along the boardwalk. This makes it a hotspot for finding small birds. The birds are very friendly to visitors and will even eat seeds from your hands. Make sure you bring some seeds or pick some at the visitor center. Needless to say this is very popular with young kids.
The Warbler Trail - While enjoying your stroll along the Warbler Trail, you can expect to see not only many types of Warblers but songbirds of all kinds. The Warblers are a group of small colourful birds, which feed mainly on insects. Twenty three species of warblers breed in New Brunswick. One of the shy residents of the Warbler trail is the Veery, which is a small reddish-brown thrush. One must spend some time sitting and carefully watching to see a Veery. The Black-capped Chickadee will be a very familiar sight to most people. You can usually hear the trademark "chick-a-dee-dee" long before you see them. The "Hatch" in the Red-breasted Nuthatch's name refers to what the bird does. It sometimes opens nuts by pounding the nut until it is "hatched". The American Robin is the best known of all songbirds in the region. The robin is very vocal in the early morning and late evening. The Blue Jay has an amazing repertoire. Its very distinctive "jay-jay-jay" gives the Blue Jay its name, but it will also mimic other birds and even frogs croaking.
