Oak Mountain State Park: Have You Been Lately?

OMSP, which is practically right in your backyard (or maybe it literally IS for some of you lucky folks!), is an excellent place to do some Alabama birding! While we may be taking a little field trip as a group out there to explore the Treetop Nature Trail, the park has LOTS of other birding trails that would make fantastic locations to see God’s creative handiwork, as well. click the image below to check out some of the other trails they have to offer.


Get Involved!

Each February, Cornell University in Ithaca, NY holds a Great Backyard Bird Count–and this February, YOU can participate! This year’s count will be held from February 12-February 15. Click the map below for information on how to get registered and how you help count those birds!
