Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge

33.29 N   88.81 W
Lakes, bottomlands and pine woods make this one of Mississippi's finest birding spots. You should have no trouble finding a Red-cockaded Woodpecker along Woodpecker Trail. Visit the boardwalk at Bluff Lake too.

Gulf Islands National Seashore
31.00 N   87.00 W
The woods near Ocean Springs may be full of spring migrants and the marshes and shore nearby are great for wading birds. Least Terns and Black Skimmers nest here.

St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge
31.88 N   91.44 W
The Mississippi River forms the western boundary of the refuge. Four lakes, bottomlands and upland forests plus open fields offer a variety of habitat. The waterfowl are best seen from October to February and shorebirds are here except in the dead of winter.
