Little River Canyon National Preserve (LRCNP), located on Lookout Mountain east of Fort Payne in Cherokee and DeKalb counties in northeastern Alabama, became a National Park Service unit in 1992. One of the longest mountaintop rivers in the eastern United States, the LRCNP also encompasses one of the most extensive gorge systems and possesses one of the cleanest rivers in that region. Little ornithological fieldwork has been conducted in the LRCNP, however, and therefore, the primary objectives of this research were to determine the relative status and seasonal abundance of the birds inhabiting the LRCNP and to collect evidence of breeding.
