About this trip

On a good day in September, hundreds of raptors might be seen passing through. Most will be Broad-winged Hawks (in some years more than 3,000 have been seen at one time), but smaller numbers in the hundreds are far more likely. Other species also occur, including Osprey, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, American Kestrel, Turkey Vulture and Black Vulture. Even Peregrine Falcon is possible as several pairs breed in the North Carolina Mountains and others pass through our area. We will spend the day at the overlook, viewing and learning about birds of prey.

Very helpful. I've always been terrible identifying sparrows. This presentation offered a logical way to think about the similarities and differences. Looking forward to trying it out on some live examples.

Very informative talk, also entertaining. I especially appreciated the comparisons between similar species.

This was a fun way to become familiar with the guides, the participants, and the way Ventures domestic trips are run. Of course the photos of birds were especially appreciated. Certainly makes me want to join a trip - though not in the cold climates!

Great trip! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and organized. He had a plan for each day and stuck to it. He kept us informed of where we were going, what to expect and what to look for. I certainly appreciated that he was a safe driver. Accommodations were very nice and very clean, big points there. Wonderful group of interesting travel mates and I hope to see them again on other trips!
