Birding - Bird Watching Sites

In the Birding Trails section you will find great bird-watching sites in national wildlife refuges, wildlife management areas, wilderness preserves, state parks, national parks, and bird sanctuaries all over the United States– something for birders and bird-watchers of all experience levels in all kinds of natural habitats and environments. Each birding trip is a complete chapter from a birding guidebook and includes a detailed map, driving directions to the area, and a list of the various bird species you are likely to observe, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers. Every birding trail is linked to USGS topographic maps from the trail overview page, and many also offer a host of additional features like photos, migration calendars, regional locator maps, birding tours, and interesting information on the region. Whether you are planning a big expedition to the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail or just a quick day trip to a nearby park, find the perfect birding trip for you by clicking below on any state birding section. Then browse by selecting a specific region or “Top Trail” from the list, or by simply clicking on the interactive state map.
