Birding, Birdwatching, and Birds in Mobile, Alabama

More than 397 bird species have been positively identified within the state of Alabama, almost half of the total species for the continental United Sates. Of these, 179 breed within the state. Spring and Fall migration attracts thousands of birds along the Gulf Coast, especially on nearby Daulphin Island and Fort Morgan, well known “fallout” areas where the migrating birds rest for a bit, allowing closeup views, when storms prevent their continuing on. These hot birding spots are complemented by the Gulf Shores, East Mobile Delta and Mobile Causeway, and Blakely Island.
