The best birding hot spot is Tybee Island’s north beach — North American Migration Flyways, and Colonial Coast birding Trail. Field birders will also want to check out birding at nearby Fort Pulaski National Monument on Cockspur Island.
“World Migratory Bird Day is a global, annual awareness campaign to promote the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats worldwide. It is organized by the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) and the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) – two international wildlife treaties administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).” – Source: worldmigratorybirdday.org | On Twitter @WMBD
