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.

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.
