WWF Abstract

More than 250 species of birds are found in this ecoregion, and they attract a legion of admirers. Throughout the year, with binoculars in hand, throngs of birders head to the forests and the shores in hopes of adding more species to their life lists. From shorebirds along water's edge to migratory wood warblers in the coastal forests, the bird diversity here is exceptional.
