According to the Carolina Bird Club, New Hanover County has over 356 species of birds that have been documented. Of all the classic American pastimes, perhaps none is as widely accessible as watching birds. Spend some time on the Audubon’s website to get some basic tips on starting your bird watching journey including locations, gear and guides. Who knows, if you get really good at identifying birds and becoming an Aviphile, you can participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count coming up in February 13-16, 2015.
