Here are some resources for bird watching on public game lands in North Carolina.
The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission began a bird atlas project in January 2021. A bird atlas is a systematic survey of an entire region (state, county, country, etc.), usually carried out by volunteers. We will be relying on hundreds of North Carolinians to observe and record their bird sightings anywhere in the state through 2025. To learn more about the NC Bird Atlas and how to participate, visit the project website.
