Chapel Hill Bird Count Circle — areas 23 and 25

23. Edwards Mountain area. Bounded by US 15-501 on west, Mt. Carmel Ch. Rd./SR 1008 on north and east, and Lystra Ch. Rd. on south. Includes Governor's Club. Do not count Farrington Road (1008) itself, just areas to the west. Notes: This area includes extensive swampy forested game lands to the west of Farrington Road, but access is difficult.

25. Big Woods Swamp area. Bounded on north by Lystra Rd. from SR 1008 to US 15-501, east by 1008, south by count circle, west by 15-501. Notes: Includes a nice swamp at the northern end of Big Woods Road. Great Blue Herons have nested to the east of the road. The swamp to the west of Big Woods is good to check for ducks, shorebirds, and sparrows, in season. See Big Woods Road for more.
