Birding. Here, only the sky is crowded.

Located on the Atlantic Migratory Flyway, our Island is a prized paradise for avid and casual birders. More than 280 species have been regularly spotted here, from Bald Eagles and Roseate Spoonbills to Oystercatchers and Painted Buntings. And the Island's undisturbed beaches and woodlands are havens for a number of threatened and endangered species.
Early morning birding trips, evening owl prowls and other bird-seeking excursion are regular activities led by our skilled naturalists. Or strike Reservationsout on your own with binoculars, a map of birding hot spots and a Little St. Simons Island Birding Checklist.

"Little St. Simons Island is a marvelous place to see birds. The shorebird spectacle and falcon migration are fantastic. There are few other places where birders can experience such unspoiled natural beauty in such a peaceful setting."
