About this trip

Jackson Park in Hendersonville is easily one of the best fall birding spots in all of WNC. Nearly every migrating songbird in the east has been recorded here, with as many as 23 warblers recorded in a single day! Seldom seen on migration in this area, both Connecticut and Mourning Warblers, have been found in this park. More likely to be seen are Blackburnian, Cape May, Northern Parula, Black-throated Blue, Northern Waterthrush -- the list goes on and on! Early September is a great time to be looking for Blue-winged and Golden-winged Warblers as they pass through on their way south. Not only warblers are abundant in the fall; Philadelphia and Warbling Vireos are seen occasionally, along with Red-eyed, White-eyed, and Yellow-throated Vireos. Swainson's and Wood Thrushes can be seen feeding on the berries at the tops of the trees along the woodland walk, and both Yellow-billed & Black-billed Cuckoos have been spotted as they migrate through the park. We will of course spend a few minutes on the "Warbler Trail," and you’ll see firsthand how this trail got its name!

This was a great day. Clifton navigated some unexpected logistics (unposted road closure) and made a full day with tons of stops he was familiar with. I am only a year into birding and added 13 species to my list. He was the most experienced person I have ever birded with, able to ID tons of birds by ear then spot them.

This was a great trip. Kevin Burke is a wonderful trip leader. He makes every effort for everyone to see the birds. He works hard to make sure everything runs smoothly.

You should be aware that this trip was cancelled by Ventures Birding, and I have a credit with them for the full amount paid.
