Top Birding Locations – Map

eBird banner

Birding in a new area can be more challenging if you don’t know the top locations and how to get there. The choice of eBird Hot Spots featured is based on number of species seen, not necessarily most recent. Some of the Hot Spots are best for winter water birds and some best for summer nesting and migrants.

There are well over 100 links in the map, so click on the map, zoom, switch between map & satellite, and explore!

  • RED icons are eBird Hot Spots.
  • Flag and pin markers are most recent eBird report from county.
  • Note: Flag and pin markers are not specific birding locations, just middle area of a county.

Mouse over icons to see Hot Spot/County name, click and a link to eBird appears.
