What Is a Birding Trail?
What a birding trail is NOT: a trail for birds.
What a birding trails IS: a route for people who want to see birds!
Birding trails are most often driving trips with stops at special places where birds are most likely to be seen. Each stop describes the habitat, what birds are there in what season, where to look, and how to get from a main road to the location. Some trails include water routes where you can paddle your canoe or kayak to see birds; other trails include biking or walking routes.
With more than 40 million people in America describing themselves as interested in bird watching, birding trails have become big business. More than twenty states now have birding trails. Birding trails and their birds attract visitors to primarily rural locations, which spurs economic development and gives local residents increased incentive to safeguard the natural areas around their communities and region.
