In autumn, watch for early arriving migratory waterfowl including Blue winged Teal, Gadwall, American Wigeon, Pintails and others. Also keep an eye out for various warbler species and shorebirds such as Godwits, Herons, Egrets, Avocets, Plovers, gulls and Ibis.

During the winter months be on the lookout for waterfowl like Gadwall, Redhead, Bufflehead, Black Scoter, Teal, Tundra Swans, Snow Geese, Redheads, Canvasback, Widgeon, Ruddy Ducks, Ring neck Ducks, Northern Shovelers, and Pintails.
Also check the beaches for various shorebirds like Ruddy Turnstones, Godwits, Plovers, Rails and Willets.
In addition, the winter should provide a great opportunity to find Northern Harriers, Yellow rumped Warblers, Pelicans, Gulls and White Ibis. An added bonus is to find a Snowy Owl or a Snow Bunting as they move down through the OBX.

Viewing Recommendations: A zoom/telephoto lens (200 mm or more), spotting scope or binoculars are recommended for viewing birds in this area.
