If you are looking for information on birding in Kentucky, then you are in the right place.
Whether you are planning a short day trip to a local park or an extended trip to a nearby bird sanctuary, you need a good plan.
If you want to search for a specific bird, maybe for your life list, you will need to do some research.
Use your field guide for habitat information and possible locations to begin your search. Then take a look at the bird checklists provided by many wildlife sanctuaries. Once you've narrowed your search area, plan your travel, get your birding gear together and Go Birding!
If you're simply looking for a place to go bird watching without an intended target, you still need a plan. You will need to research the location instead of a specific bird. You will need maps, bird checklists (if available) weather conditions, etc.
