Vacationing in the Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo area offers birdwatcher several uniquely different opportunities. Being a coastal area there are naturally a tremendous number and variety of shorebirds. On any given summer day while sitting on the beach you can easily count forty or more species including rare species both common and uncommon to this area.
A very short drive north to the Pea Island Wildlife Station and visitors can walk the trails around the North Pond. You will see shore birds, marsh birds and deciduous birds in the brush along the trails. Don't forget your camera if you want some great shots for your album.
