Our Coastal Avian Experience
The North Carolina coast is one of the top rated regions for bird biodiversity. The impressively unique geography of our region provides a rare opportunity to birders, as multiple ecosystems come together in a beautiful medley of habitats.
St. James is included in the Atlantic Flyway which is a primary migratory route for birds spanning the eastern coastline of the United States. We, therefore, have a front row seat to a remarkable display of migratory birds and waterfowl. Take a moment when you are out and about to notice the abundant shorebirds around St. James.
The Backyard Experience
Wildlife, including birds, always find a home where the surroundings provide all the elements to provide food, cover, water, and a place to raise young. If any of these elements are missing, or they don't feel safe, they will move on to "greener pastures".
By creating a bird friendly habitat, you will add the joy of seeing a large variety of songbirds, year around.
