A Few Great Birding Locations in The US

A Few Great Birding Locations in The US

So you’re a new birder or new to an area and you just don’t know where to go birding. Well the Audubon app will tell you where birds have been seen in any given area throughout the US. But where are the really great location to go birding? Well, I do know of a few… Below I’ve listed a few places that I’ve been or plan to go soon

Plum Island/Parker River National Wildlife Refuge – Massachusetts (to be avoided in the month of July due to the vicious green head horsefly!) I found this beautiful Snowy Owl there a couple of years ago…


Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge – Massachusetts. I found this American Woodcock hiding in the low shrubbery along the path. The one and only time that I’ve seen one of these birds!


Cape May –  New Jersey.

Acadia National Park – Maine.

Monterey Bay – California.

Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve – California. I’ve seen soooo many great birds here, it’s hard to pick just one photo for you, this is really a wonderful birding location! Here is one of many Long-billed Curlews that I saw there.


Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge – Texas.

Merritt Island – Florida

Everglades National Park – Florida

Huntington Beach State Park – South Carolina. If you go there usually in the spring/summer you might just see the Roseate-Spoonbill. 


Let me know if there are other good places to go to see lots of birds. If you go to these places, let me know what you see! Have Fun and Happy Birding!
