The Colonial Coast Birding Trail of Georgia is renowned as the best on the East Coast. Led by an experienced birding expert, explore key bird-watching habitats on St. Simons, Sapelo and Jekyll islands to spot birds of prey, shorebirds, songbirds, waders, waterfowl, woodland birds and migrants. This trail aptly weaves bird watching into a fascinating exploration of the state’s historical roots.


Highlights

• Set off on morning bird walks in the Altamaha River Delta on old earthen dikes in rice plantation country.
• Explore beach, forest and pond habitats on Jekyll Island — the jewel of Georgia — and visit the Rookery, where many wading birds nest and raise their young.
• Experience a ferry ride to Sapelo Island to enjoy birding and learn about the historic Gullah community of tiny Hog Hammock.
