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. In the .pdf below, you will see that approximately 108 species of birds have been identified here!

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.
