Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge

Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge offers hiking trails through Gulf coastal marshes and maritime forests. As many as 2 million birds visit Bon Secour during migration, and sea turtles nest here in summer. Over 370 different species of birds, including the Rubythroat Hummingbird, make their way through here in a year; migratory season is April and May and then again in September and October. The endangered Alabama beach mouse and threatened Bald Eagle, Loggerhead Sea Turtle, Piping Plover, Gopher Tortoise, and American Alligator make their home here. So do the Monarch Butterfly, bobcats, raccoons, osprey, and such local shorebirds as the Brown Pelican.
