The sharp knocking and laughing call of the Pileated Woodpecker coming from the woods. The Hollywood-iconic cry of the Red-Tailed Hawk over the canyon. The red flash of a Northern Cardinal darting through the trees. These are but a few of the over 140 species of birds which call the woods, waters, and rocks of Little River Canyon National Preserve home.
Little River Canyon National Preserve is one of the 19 featured stops along the Northeast Loop of the North Alabama Birding Trail.
Watch for the North Alabama Birding Trail markers along the Little River Canyon Rim Parkway (AL Highway 176) at the driveway to the Jacksonville State University Little River Canyon Center on the north end, and at Eberhart Point at the south end.
