With five state parks, two state forests and the Monongahela National Forest, there’s no shortage of trails and overlooks to spot some of our many unique species.

Whether you’re a seasoned birder, or just looking to get started in the sport, Pocahontas County, West Virginia is the perfect place to learn more and see more of these interesting migrants.
