North Carolina harbors an incredible diversity of habitats that
provide food and shelter for more than 440 bird species throughout
the year, making the state a destination for birders and nature
lovers. The North Carolina Birding Trail is a driving trail linking
birders and tourists with great birding sites across the state and
the local communities in which they are found.
The first of three regional guides, the Coastal Plain Trail
presents 102 birding destinations east of Interstate 95.
The spiral-bound volume features maps, detailed site descriptions,
and color photographs throughout. Each site description includes
directions as well as information on access, focal species and
habitats, and on-site visitor amenities. Special "while you're in
the area" listings accompany each of sixteen site groupings, so
visitors can travel to a cluster of birding destinations and enjoy
other local highlights and attractions along the way.
