    North Carolina Birding Trail


      

      The North Carolina Birding Trail links 300+ bird watching sites and birders with communities, businesses and educational attractions. But it is more than lines on a map, and birders do more than seek out rare birds. They help others learn about birds. They help scientists collect data. They can benefit local economies. The North Carolina Birding Trail is a network in many ways, for the benefit of all.
