Birding Georgia

The sheer size of Georgia makes it difficult to see all of it (it’s the largest state east of the Mississippi River), and it has among the highest number of eco-regions and attendant bird species of any eastern state. From mountains in the Blue Ridge through the rolling hills and large rivers of the Piedmont and swamps of the Coastal Plain to the Atlantic Coast, you can find many different bird species at any one time, and over the course of a year or several years see many more species, all within the confines of our state.
