Birding in West Alabama

Had a great Friday several weeks ago, spending the day with Corps of Engineers folks and several folks from the Birmingham Audubon Society as we looked at Corps of Engineers properties that are potentially on the new West Alabama and Black Belt Birding Trails, all part of the Alabama Birding Trails project I’m working on with the University of Alabama Center for Economic Development in partnership with the Alabama Tourism Department.

West Alabama is filled with birds. We really couldn’t have timed it better: we saw a Bald Eagle soaring overhead, a Belted Kingfisher fishing, along with lots of smaller birds and several hundred wading birds, all in the course of a long but enjoyable day topped off with BBQ chicken in Demopolis, Alabama!

One of the photos I snapped near Backbone Creek at the edge of Marengo and Greene Counties.
