The Brownsville Overlook, located about three miles south of Brownsville, Minn., along Highway 26, is one of the best places along the river to view hundreds of tundra swans,  ducks, bald eagles, and other birds. The tundra swans typically start showing up in late October, peak in mid to late November, and are gone once the river freezes over. 

If you have been here in other seasons, please contact us to help fill in more detail besides the swans.

Notes:

  • Concrete, railed overlook.
  • Built in spotting scopes.

 Thanks to Joni Welda for the suggestion and photos.
