Full Description

Few areas along the east coast support more large numbers of wintering waterfowl and wading birds than the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Especially in January and early February, dozens of fascinating species of birds spend the winter in the marshes and ponds of Pea and Bodie Islands, part of the National Wildlife Refuge system, where they are easily observed and enjoyed. This trip actively explores these areas for wildlife and includes a stop at Lake Mattamuskeet. An optional kayak paddle on a sheltered creek, which courses through Maritime Forest, rounds out an adventuresome weekend of wildlife and exploration. Participants and staff will stay at the Comfort Inn in Kill Devil Hills and meals are provided, except for evening dinners. Lodging is based on double occupancy. Transportation, guides, boats and all paddling and optical equipment are provided.
