Situated along the Eastern Migratory Flyway, this is a birder's paradise. Habitats include open ocean, beach dunes, grasslands, maritime hammock, depression marsh, and estuarine tidal marsh. Amelia's rich and fish-filled waters create a veritable gold mine for birds. Visitors to the beautiful barrier island of Cumberland may encounter shorebirds, warblers, and hawks but keep an eye out for the wood stork, peregrine falcon, American oystercatcher, American redstart and painted bunting.
