MONTGOMERY-It’s the Year of Alabama Birding! Here in Alabama, there are over 280 birding sites and eight birding trails to introduce you to over 425 species of birds — from rare and endangered species like the red-cockaded woodpecker to common backyard birds like the painted bunting. Some of the most popular places in Alabama for bird-watching include Oak Mountain State Park, Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Guntersville National Forest, and Cheaha State Park. If you’re in the state during the spring and fall migrations, you can witness birds from all over North America. With so many perfect spots for bird-watching in Alabama, the only problem you’ll need to solve is where to head first!

Alabama is a critical habitat for hundreds of bird species, from Whooping Cranes, one of America’s most endangered species, to Bald Eagles now flourishing near Alabama waterways. From birds that live here year-round to those that migrate through the area seasonally, there is an exciting array of opportunities to explore birds in Alabama’s 21 State Parks.

Learn more about the Alabama State Parks and other year-round public bird watching locations by visiting the Alabama Birding Trails.
