My trip was a gift to me from a friend and my family for my 80th birthday! What a wonderful experience; nice people, leaders were experts on birds and the beautiful coastal area. Trinity Conference Center made you feel at home and had delicious meals. Even more fun was that my daughter Mary Ellen was along to photograph the birds and local area. great photos! Thanks to you all. M. Back Seven Lakes NC.

Birding the Outer banks was a great time seeing wonderful birds with a fun group of people. The hiking was minimal but at times over uneven and sandy ground. This is a good trip for anyone wanting to expand their bird watching skills while enjoying the ocean.
