I was expecting a building of some sort since it was an Audubon site. No building, just a handball court. Not sure about the parking either, that's why we didn't stay long. The sign says to park in the back of the handball court, but...More

Not really sure why this is here? Short walk to the water and biting flies. No birds. Must have been a deal with the massive Pine Island resort community to have this.

We pulled in to do some birding. People did a review about walking two miles, we did not find that. We walked a boardwalk through cat tails that took us to the sound. The walk was pleasant because it was in the early morning and...More

Off-season and sunny, so the walk was not unpleasant- although not notable. Nothing much at end of the line. I guess birds were on strike (although N Carolina is a "right to work" state!!)

After walking two and a half miles you come to a stand overlooking the sound. There we saw fewer birds than we would see in our community pond. The walk it self was a boring walk through the scrub trees. I couldn't even say it...More

So this Sanctuary is also by the sign that says Pine Island tennis. I talked to Rick and wanted to get into his clinics but was too late. I was VERY impressed with their 2 Har -Tru [ some call clay] outdoor courts. He also...More

Needs Some Attention to Detail There are many many birders and birding people that visit the Outer Banks. To have a place named the Audubon Pine Island Sanctuary, on Audubon Drive will attract visitors. The nature trail is nice and a pleasant stroll, no one...More

This place was recommended by an Audubon employee friend of mine. It was somewhat of a letdown as a birding spot. First, it was difficult and confusing to find: no sign on the main road to turn off, so be sure to use navigation on...More
