Peter Vankevich, one of our resident bird watchers, explained to me recently that raptors migrate through the Outer Banks this time of year. Just a few days ago folks reported seeing dozens of peregrine falcons as well as other falcons and ospreys. It is even possible to spot a bald eagle now and then on Ocracoke.
Another place to view migratory birds is the Pea Island Wildlife Refuge. If you are driving through Hatteras Island be sure to stop, pick up your binoculars, and take a look for raptors and other migratory waterfowl. There is always something of note to be seen there.
