The Audubon Bird Sanctuary is the prime area for spotting birds as they travel to and from Central and South America. Dauphin Island is among the top four spots in all of North America for viewing bird migrations in the spring, and researchers have learned that more than 95 percent of Alabama's bird species have passed through Dauphin Island at one point or another.
Many of them flock to the 137-acre Audubon Bird sanctuary to recuperate during their long journey. The sanctuary contains a variety of unique geographic features, including forests, marshes, dunes, and beaches. According to the National Audubon Society, the sanctuary plays key role in protecting and perpetuating a number of bird species. More Alabama vacations
