Dauphin Island

Spring and fall migration on Dauphin Island, a Globally Important Bird Area, are the stuff of birding legend, and hotspots like Pelican Point, the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, Cadillac Square, the Goat Tree Reserve, the Shell Mounds, the Airport Marsh, and the West End are stops on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail (ACBT) and are well known to the bird watching community. But Dauphin Island also has a number of smaller, less well known locales that can provide excellent bird watching opportunities. In fact, rare and vagrant birds can appear at any place on the island! Descriptions of the bird watching locales that follow are organized from east to west.  Click on the link below to download this guide to Birding Dauphin Island
