Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Dauphin Island / Fort Morgan
30.14 N   88.02 W
These islands in the Gulf of Mexico can be a spectacular spot -- especially during migration or just after a hurricane! These two sites, a ferry ride apart, rank right up there with Rockport or High Island, Texas.


Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge / Guntersville Lake
34.52 N   86.94 W
The lake (actually a wide spot in  the Tennessee River) is the best spot in Alabama to find 60,000 wintering ducks, grebes and loons. Bald Eagles can be seen near the dam.
