Bald Head Island is home to the 191-acre Bald Head Woods Forest Preserve. Having such an expansive forest preserve means a beautiful home to over 260 species of birds (that have been documented). Our most popular bird is the painted bunting--you could say it's our other mascot (aside from the sea turtle of course). The forest is also home to squirrels, raccoons, foxes, deer, snakes, tree frogs, and toads.
