Lake Lanier is a 38,000-acre deepwater lake northeast of Atlanta. It has numerous parks and boat ramps affording viewing access to large areas of the lower lake. While this lake is heavily used in warm weather, during the winter it gets less boat traffic and is a good place to look for waterfowl and gulls. Numerous rarities have been found, including gulls and a few Red-necked Grebes, so it pays to be alert for anything. Of the gulls, Ring-billed are the most common, followed by a few Herring and sometimes Bonaparte’s. A scope is a necessity. Many of the parks and ramps have wooded areas nearby for land-birding possibilities. This route starts on the east side of the lake and works around the south side to the west side. If you do not have a full morning, you can start in the middle of the route at the dam by following the directions in reverse and going to only a few spots near the dam as time permits. The dam and spots near it are the most productive. Key birds: Common Loon, Eared Grebe, Horned Grebe, gulls. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, and helpful general information.
