Connecting with Birds and Nature Tours, LLC. was started on October 31, 2018 as a way to diversify the family’s multigenerational Black Angus cattle farm. The property has been in the family since the early 1900s. It is located on 200 acres in Newbern, Alabama. The property consists of pasture, bottomland hardwood, and a creek.
I hosted my first birding tour at the property February 16, 2019. On July 20, 2019, we hosted Alabama Audubon for one of their the first major birding tours with group over 130+ people attending.
Although the focus is on birders, we offer other activities such as nature walks and biking, and even camping. We are accessible to all visitors as we have an 18-foot trailer with a spring-loaded ramp for wheelchairs and people with mobility issues.
