Birding on Cape Lookout National Seashore Professional Review and Guide

"The open wildlands of Cape Lookout National Seashore are excellent places to see a variety of birds, especially during spring and fall migrations. The diversity and numbers of birds at this national seashore don’t quite compare to those of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore to the north.

Cape Lookout has a bird-sighting list of 275 species and, as the last uninhabited stretch of barrier island in North Carolina, is an important resting spot for birds during their spring and fall migrations. It is one of the most important areas in the state for the threatened piping plover.

Though there is a great variety of birdlife at Cape Lookout National Seashore, the park is not a popular place for birders primarily because of its remoteness."
