Audubon NC Free Birding Tours 
The sights and sounds of colorful and unique coastal birds fill the air in coastal North Carolina this time of year. Audubon North Carolina staff are helping people get close-up looks at these natural marvels through free guided tours of the Mason Inlet Waterbird Management Area through September. The tours, which run from 9am to 11am every Friday, are open to the public and feature a walk along the protected sanctuary that serves as habitat for beach-nesting birds including Least Tern, Black Skimmer, American Oystercatcher, Wilson's Plover and other unique and interesting coastal birds. Audubon North Carolina worked with the local community to develop this dynamic bird sanctuary from an inlet relocation project. Mason Inlet is now home to the state's largest beach-nesting colony of Least Terns. You do not need to register, just meet at the Mason Inlet information kiosk. Call 910.686.7527 or email awood@audubon.org for more information.
