Birding
A multitude of migratory songbirds pass through the park during spring and fall, most from mid-April to mid-May and again from early September to mid-October. At least two-dozen species of warblers, plus the flycatchers, vireos, thrushes, tanagers, and orioles. One of the highlight species at Columbus-Belmont State Park is the Mississippi Kite, present from early May to late August.
