The Arkansas Delta is in the heart of the Mississippi River Flyway, a major North-South migration route for birds, making it a paradise for birdwatchers. Of the many sites, some have been officially designated as “Important Bird Areas (IBAs)," including two with global significance. The goal of this Audubon-sponsored program is to conserve birds by identifying, monitoring, and protecting critical bird habitats. One third of Arkansas's recognized IBAs are in the Arkansas Delta Byways region. Don’t miss them on your next discovery tour through the area.
