Battery Island: A Home for All Birds

Record #:
Each year, thousands of water birds travel to Battery Island--a chuck of marsh rising out of the Cape Fear River across from Southport. During the summer this area becomes home to North Carolina's largest populations of white ibises, egrets, and heron. As such the state is leasing Battery Island to the Audubon Society as a sanctuary where it can be managed and studied as a refuge for water birds.
