Explore some of the feathered residents of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge on this guided tour that is sure to be an enlightening, engaging, and wholly fascinating addition to any wild Hatteras Island vacation.
The Pea Island Bird Walk is a weekly experience offered by the refuge that encompasses a scenic and guided walk along the region’s North Pond area. Along the way, visitors can be on the lookout for some of the nearly 400 species of birds that call the refuge home, all while hearing a wealth of information on what makes the refuge – and the varying species themselves – so unique.
Field guides and binoculars will be on hand for visitors to borrow to learn a little more, although folks are welcome (and encouraged) to bring along their own cameras and viewing devices. Visitors are also encouraged to bring along bug spray and sturdy shoes for the ensuing trek, and both beginning and expert birdwatchers of all ages are welcome to attend and join in the fun. The event launches from the Pea Island Visitor Center, which is just a few miles north of Rodanthe on NC Highway 12. A fun and scenic stroll throughout, the Pea Island Bird Walk is a great way to enjoy an outdoors adventure off the sand.
