Birding Hutaff Island
 

Locally, in New Hanover County, there are few Island habitats left that are pristine in nature.  However, just east of Futch Creek, lies a 5 mile barrier Island complex, that is state protected, and Audubon managed, named Hutaff/Lea Island.  This Island is the last of its kind, boasting several species of breeding shorebird, including the threatened Piping Plover.  Considered by many to be the top shorebirding area in  the southeast, Hutaff provides users a unique opportunity to recreate on one of the last untouched barrier Island in Southeastern North Carolina
