W. KERR SCOTT RESERVOIR
This US Army Corps of Engineers Reservoir affords many birding opportunities. A birding trip here should start at the Visitor Assistance Center, where you can get more information on the many parks surrounding the reservoir and find out about restricted hunting areas. Many of the nearby parks offer great views of the reservoir, with trails that pass through a variety of habitats.
