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!

What a beautiful day we had birding with Keith! Always enjoy his outings. Was well organized with several pre-planned stops along the way to see several varieties of warblers migrating through. The lake was a bit high to see mass quantities of shorebirds, but Keith still made it fun pointing out several cool birds and taking us on a beautiful hike to the end of the road.

After a bit of a wait for the fog to lift we saw a lot of birds. Most common warbler was Tennessee, estimated at over 100. Great guide in Aaron and Simon.

Very productive trip. Great guide, warblers are his passion. Kevin is considerate, pays attention to details, makes sure you see the bird , identifies calls and works to obtain your target birds. Well organized, considering dealing with Covid and restaurants etc. never in an uncomfortable situation. Have booked additional trips with Kevin

The birding and guide were outstanding. We would have appreciated more thought/planning on meals.
