Birding Tours

Looking to witness an up-close view of season bird sightings on private property instead of standing on a distant roadside or worrying about trespassing restrictions? Connecting with Birds and Nature Tours is indeed a bird watcher’s year-round place to visit. The nature trail offers wonderful West Alabama bird and Black Belt bird watching opportunities along the beautiful pasture, bottom-land hardwood, and creeks. Access 200 acres of private property to see seasonal sightings of some unique birds such as Wood Stork, American White Pelicans, White Ibis, Swallow Tailed Kite, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, and Great Egret, Osprey, Mississippi Kite, and Loggerhead Shrike.
