Birds of a Feather in OBX

birds, nature, Travel

The Outer Banks (OBX) in North Carolina is known for its beaches. However, it’s not the only reason people visit. OBX is made up of several locations. It’s 200 miles of barrier islands and each location has something to offer. In fact, one of the reasons people visit is for birding.

The best places for birding in the OBX are: The Elizabethan Gardens, Roanoke Island Marsh Game Land, Jockey’s Ridge State Park, Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, Duck, Ocracoke, Buxton and Frisco Woods.

If you’re really interested in birds, you may even want to visit the annual “Wings Over Water” festival held in the OBX. It is a week long event that takes place in October.

Although I don’t consider myself an avid birder or even an intermediate birder, I do enjoy watching them in their elements. Here are few photos we captured on our trip to Hatteras Island.
