Alabama Wildlife and Nature guide

Welcome to Alabama wildlife. When it comes to size, the Alabama coast shows it does not matter.

All the common Gulf Coast wildlife from Sea Turtles to birds find their way to the shoreline at one time or another during the year.

The Bon Secur National Wildlife Refuge, for example, documents approximately three hundred and sixty bird species.

The video shows a handful of common Alabama beach birds.

  • American Oystercatcher
  • Black Tern
  • Sanderling
  • Willet
  • Ruddy Turnstone
  • Royal Tern
  • Caspian Tern and Gulls
  • Brown Pelicans
The height of the tourist season, late summer, coincides with the shorebird migration.

During the winter, waterfowl, think ducks, call most of Mobile Bay the home.

As the site grows, more information covering Alabama wildlife will be added.
