Helpful Information about Birding Trails

We here at TrailLink.com think the old saying that something is "for the birds" should mean its opposite; according to a 2009 report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1 in 5 Americans has an affinity for our feathered friends, making birding one of the most popular recreational activities in the nation.

Many trails travel through forests, wetlands, meadows, or other habitats that are attractive to birds and offer quiet areas that allow you to observe and listen to birds. Use habitats like these as search terms in the advanced keyword search on TrailLink.com to find birding trails, or use our trail maps to identify when a trail goes through a national or state park, wildlife preserve, or other protected area that may offer a particularly good bet for birding.

Whether you're a novice bird watcher or experienced twitcher, the organizations listed below can help you pursue your passion by offering birding guides, online networking, special events, and other resources:
