The Outer Banks of North Carolina might just be the best place to bird in the Carolinas during the fall and winter. These long, thin barrier islands, jutting far out into the ocean, provide important foraging and stopover habitat for hundreds of species of birds throughout the year. Bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and the Pamlico Sound on the other, the open expanse of sandy shoreline, ocean, bays, lakes and impoundments attract migrating shorebirds, waterfowl and gulls by the thousands.

Join Kevin in this exploration of one of North Carolina’s prime birding hotspots!
