2nd Annual Alabama Coastal BirdFest

©2005 Weeks Bay Reserve Foundation
"Coastal Alabama is a critical stopover point during the annual fall migration of many birds, traveling from as far north as the Arctic Circle in North America to winter homes in Central and South America, which makes this a wonderful time and place to see birds from all over the North American continent,” said John Borom, President of the Mobile Bay Audubon Society and one of the event organizers.

Nearly 20 guided birding tours along the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail are planned, including stops at Weeks Bay, Bellingrath Gardens, Bayou la Batre, Historic Blakeley State Park and the Tensaw Delta, Dauphin Island, Bon Secour, and Gulf Shores. “This year, we have added several new tours and will repeat visits to some of last year’s most popular destinations,” said Borom. “We’ve scheduled daily boat tours at Weeks Bay and in the Delta, which were a huge attraction last year.”
