North Carolina harbors an incredible diversity of habitats that provide food and shelter for more than 440 bird species throughout the year. The NC Briding 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.This second of three regional guides presents over 100 birding destinations between Interstate 95 and Charlotte. The spiral-bound volume features maps, detailed site descriptions, and color 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 site grouping, so visitors can travel to a cluster of birding destinations and enjoy other local highlights and attractions along the way.The North Carolina Birding Trail is a partnership of six agencies and organizations: Audubon North Carolina, North Carolina Cooperative Extension, North Carolina Sea Grant, North Carolina State Parks, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Its mission is to conserve and enhance North Carolina's bird habitat by promoting sustainable bird-watching activities, economic opportunities, and conservation education. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
