Audubon North Carolina Coastal Sanctuaries
Audubon’s Coastal Sanctuary Program is a model for conservation along the Atlantic Flyway. The program maintains a diverse network of nesting habitats where researchers can study waterbird ecology, and new management tools are developed. The program began with just two islands in the lower Cape Fear River and has grown to more than 20 locations that support over a third of the waterbirds that nest in North Carolina. Learn more

BHTV: Outstanding Bird Watching in Western North Carolina
One activity that's becoming more popular every day is birding. And there's no better place to see such a wide variety of birds than right here, in our mountains. With our mountainous topography and four-season climate, many rare and exciting species call Western North Carolina home for at least a portion of the year.

It seems it's not just people who love our moderate temperatures and lush vegetation. Our community is mindful of protecting space for public use, which keeps our quality of life high, along with property values. There are many great spots to go birding in Western North Carolina. Today, we are at the Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary in North Asheville, and Jackson Park in Hendersonville.
“Bird watching is, surprisingly to a lot of people, the fastest growing hobby in North America, way out-competing golf and soccer, and all these other activities—even gardening, now,” says Simon Thompson of Wild Birds Unlimited & Ventures Birding Tours. “The Fish and Wildlife Service have estimated that over 50 million people now actively feed or watch birds, which is quite extensive and growing. It's great to see so many people going out and enjoying the outdoors.”
“And you've got from almost 7,000 feet in elevation in the Blue Ridge, where, if it's 90 degrees, you can go up there and enjoy the relatively cool temperatures. Or, within a couple of hours, you can be down at the coast in a completely different environment and ecosystem. So, gosh, I have no plans to move anywhere else.”
“These high elevations mean that the birds towards the top of our Blue Ridge are actually birds of the Canadian eco-zone,” says Thompson. “So a lot of these birds are found nowhere else here in the South. Which makes the whole area for a naturalist's point of view, a superb area to base yourself.”
“Western North Carolina offers outstanding birding,” says Tom Tribble, president of the Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society. “It is a flyway for migrating birds, and we get migrating birds coming up in the spring, and going south in the winter. So the Western North Carolina mountains are a wonderful place to bird. Lots of species, in fact, in this little sanctuary, we've had more than 190 species of birds seen right here.”
“In Western North Carolina, because it's such a good birding area, I think we're getting more and more birders that are coming to the mountains just to see birds,” says Tribble. “We see people from outta the state, and also from the Piedmont and coastal regions of North Carolina. People come here for the leaves, but people also come here for the birding. And there are an incredible number of other attractions, but I stay here for the birds.”

Sea birds dive feeding off Fort Fisher, Kure Beach NC 28449
Sea birds dive feeding off Fort Fisher NC beach 12-28-10. While doing a beach portrait photography session at Fort Fisher Park in Kure Beach NC, I saw these sea birds feeding on Spanish anchovies. The Blue Fin Tuna are running under the anchovies cutting them into pieces. The birds dive down to get the left overs. It's amazing how organized the birds are. If you look closely you can see a distinct pattern.
