If you are looking for information on birding in Rhode Island, 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!
