Visitor birdwatching with binoculars

Wildlife observation, especially birdwatching, is excellent throughout the year on Blackbeard Island. In winter months, waterfowl utilize the marshland and man-made freshwater pools, while songbirds abound in the wooded acres in the spring and fall. The refuge also serves as an important area for wintering shorebirds, including the endangered piping plover. Miles of trails wind through maritime forest and provide hikers and bicyclers with scenic paths ideal for nature study.
