The second of two great summer trips exploring Alabama’s Black Belt—in advance of our inaugural Black Belt Birding Festival—takes us to a broad stretch of coastal plain between the Black Warrior and Alabama Rivers. Participants on both trips regularly report Mississippi and swallow-tailed kites, wood storks, and scissor-tailed flycatchers, as well as numerous other southern summer specialities—each one a bird worth traveling for.

This trip in particular focuses on the “catfish country” of Hale and Perry Counties, an extensive system of agricultural ponds that draw in wading birds and a sporadic population of post-breeding wood storks. Please visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-07-24/ for more information and to register. Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CDT on Friday, July 23rd, and space is limited.
