Tips for birding Block Island National Wildlife Refuge
The Block Island National Wildlife Refuge is an important stopover for migratory birds in the fall. Many birds, either because of inexperience or the strong fall winds, are swept off their normal path and seek rest and feed in Block Island before continuing on their journey. In late September the Monarch Butterfly migration peaks and is another reason to visit Block Island.

The 127-acres of refuge land attract over 70 species of migratory songbirds and Block Island is also popular with birders because the open fields and low-lying vegetation afford excellent spotting opportunities.

For a great trail, walk take the close-by Clay Head Trail near Settlers Rock and follow the trail around the scenic line of clay headlands until it moves inland and skirts the Clay Head Swamp a wonderful place for bird-watching in the early morning.

Block Island is 12-miles off the Rhode Island coast and ferries leave from Point Judith in Narragansett.

About Block Island
Block Island is special in so many ways. It is unlike anywhere you have ever visited. Whether you enjoy a laid-back beach day, a vigorous bike ride, an adventure in a kayak, or a paddleboard lesson, our little island is worth exploring.

What many people don’t realize is just how easy it is to get here. Only 12 miles off the Rhode Island coast, we are a 15-minute plane ride from Westerly, Rhode Island; a half-hour on the high-speed ferry from Point Judith, Rhode Island; or just over an hour on the ferry from New London, Connecticut. A Montauk ferry brings visitors from Long Island, New York, to our unique island. We also have a new high-speed ferry service bringing visitors to and from Newport, Rhode Island, in just under an hour.

Once you’ve arrived on-island, you will not come across a traffic light or a big chain business, but you will be blown away by the natural landscape with stone wall-lined rolling hills, breathtaking bluffs, and pristine beaches.

If it’s an event you’re planning, Block Island may be the perfect destination. Many of the historic inns make unforgettable venues for your wedding or group getaway.

For anyone who enjoys outdoor activities, music, art, dining, and scenic beauty, Block Island beckons. As close to the mainland as it is, Block Island feels like you have been transported to another world.
