About this book

North Carolina harbors an incredible diversity of habitats that provide food and shelter for more than 440 bird species throughout the year, making the state a destination for birders and nature lovers. The North Carolina Birding Trail is a driving trail linking birders and tourists with great birding sites across the state and the local communities in which they are found.

The Coastal Plain Trail Guide presents 102 birding destinations east of Interstate 95. The spiral-bound volume features maps, detailed site descriptions, and colour photographs throughout. Each site description includes directions as well as information on access, focal species and habitats, and on-site visitor amenities. Special "while you're in the area" listings accompany each of sixteen site groupings, so visitors can travel to a cluster of birding destinations and enjoy other local highlights and attractions along the way.
