Roadside Birding

Birding from your vehicle
There are many locations, especially in rural counties, where you can view birds from your vehicle. Rural roads through agricultural lands, state forests and wildlife areas, “skypools” that form after a rain, airport runways near public roads, cemeteries, all are examples of places you can do roadside birding. Safety first

Safety first
Please use care when birding these locations. When you stop, pull off as far as you are able. Use flashers when there is traffic. If you park to get out of your vehicle, park at a pull off or on the berm completely off the pavement. Many of these locations are on roads that traverse privately owned land. Do not enter a private property without permission.

Also, see the list of hotspot locations which have handicap accessible facilities.
