Tower Grove Park has, from its inception, been known as a natural refuge for birds of many different species especially during the spring and fall migrating seasons. The Park's life list is now well over 200, and serious birders from all over the metro area, and beyond, visit the Park regularly during those seasons.
The Park is noted in particular for concentrations of migrating warblers and thrushes. Several hotspots in the Park include the Robert and Martha Gaddy Wild Bird Garden in the northwest corner of the park, with the Caroline Loughlin Fountain and Kyrle Boldt Memorial Bench; the Woodland Pool in memory of Jack Van Benthuysen on the north side of Main Drive at the east end; and the Cypress Circle on Main Drive, not far from the Woodland Pool.
