Like RV-roosting human snowbirds, fall is the time when many bird species think about heading south for the winter. Which is why we thought weâ€™d use our â€˜Find Your Adventureâ€™ series to direct your attention toward units of the National Park Service that are ideal destinations for bird-watchers:
Located at the convergence of the busy Mississippi and Central flyways, itâ€™s no wonder this southwest Texas park sees more than its share of bird traffic. In fact, more than 450 species have been recorded here..
At 2,357 square miles, itâ€™s not surprising this national park on the Atlantic and Mississippi flyways has enough avian life to make it a must-visit attraction on every serious birderâ€™s travel list. Considered one of the top 10 birding areas in the entire world.
Thanks to its location on the Pacific Flyway just a short drive north of San Francisco, this 111-square-mile national seashore plays host to nearly 500 different bird species, the most of any national park unit.
