Make like a bird, and fly to NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island

The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island's new “For the Birds" 2.5 acre nature trail showcases many of our feathery friends, some who are year-round locals and some, like tourists, visit the Outer Banks at certain times of the year. Woodpeckers, herons, osprey and many more of their beaked brethren are the stars of the show, as visitors are invited to mimic their avian activities. Build a nest like a mockingbird or a killdeer. Hop like a chickadee, and balance like a heron. Make a racket like a woodpecker, and feed like a hummingbird. All of the activity stations along the nature trail offer fun, educational and adventurous exploration into the variety of birds seen in the area, and the grounds of the aquarium are great for viewing birds in their habitats. The wooded trail is open through the fall and is included with regular aquarium admission.
