Can you imagine the birding potential in an area where five rivers come together to form the second largest river delta in America? Well the 10th annual Alabama Coastal BirdFest brings those birding dreams to life the weekend of October 3-5, 2013 at the 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center.
The Alabama Gulf Coast offers unbelievably diverse areas for birding trips. Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is a 7,000 acre coastal barrier habitat that has recorded more than 370 bird species, and at just 14 miles long, Dauphin Island rates as one of the top four neotropical migration locations. The biological diversity of Bayou La Batre, Forever Wild Grand Bay Savanna, Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and Point aux Pins lead The Nature Conservancy to call it one of the “Last Great Places on Earth.” Be sure to sign up early for these and many other fantastic trips that offer walks in a variety of areas, pontoon and wine-tasting cruises, and exploring on a 65-foot fiberglass hull research vessel.
Eagle Optics proudly sponsors the Alabama Coastal BirdFest and proceeds from the festival are donated to preserve the irreplaceable birding habitat on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Eagle Optics staff will be on hand to demonstrate top-notch binoculars, spotting scopes, and tripods that fit every budget. We hope to see you there!
