Tennessee Birding with Warblers and More
More details about this Trip:
Western US birders should find this trip very appealing. Two dozen species of warblers nest in this area of the country, and another ten or so will be migrating through the area at this time of year, so a few days of birding in east Tennessee in late April could provide you with looks at over wo species of warblers.
Other highlights of this trip include Ruffed Grouse, Chuck-will's-widow, Acadian Flycatcher, Blue-headed
Vireo,Carolina Chickadee, Brown-headed Nuthatch, Winter Wren, Wood Thrush, Grasshopper Sparrow and Scarlet Tanager. Stops include a number of key birding hot spots including Sharps Ridge, Cove Lake State Park, Cross Mountain, Kyker Bottoms, Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge, Chota Waterfowl Refuge and Cherohala Skyway. Then we spend some time at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This trip offers a lot for bird watchers and wildflower/nature enthusiasts. Expect pleasant spring birding in Tennessee.
