About this trip

The Hendersonville Greenway has a multitude of habitats that make for a great day of birding. The city has gone through great lengths to make a useable green space for both humans and wildlife. On one end is Jackson Park, arguably the best migrant trap in WNC, but birding can be quite good in the late fall and winter as well. On the other end is Berkeley Park, with one of the largest and most accessible wetlands in the mountains. Nestled in the middle of the Greenway are several pollinator gardens that have recently had big numbers of both finches and sparrows. 

We will start the morning at Jackson Park looking for an assortment of sparrows and woodpeckers, plus Winter Wren, Hermit Thrush, and anything else that happens to be there. Then we will move on to the pollinator fields in search of finches, more sparrows, Cedar Waxwings, and raptors. We will end at a large wetland looking for more woodpeckers, ducks, Belted Kingfisher, and herons. This wetland has only recently been discovered for birding so there’s no telling what sort of goodies may show up here. 

It promises to be a great day with a good winter species count. Please come and join us!

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!

Another great trip with Ventures. Simon is so knowledgeable and friendly, he brings out the best in the guests and is a genius at finding the birds. Looking forward to my next trip.

I would highly recommend to any beginning birder. Vicky did great job covering so many aspects of the hobby utilizing books and charts and printed materials. We had a great morning learning how to spot, identify and record birds. Vicky's knowledge and experience was extensive and extremely helpful. I tried to take good notes, but there was a lot of information. I came away very enthused, with concrete ideas of how to progress in the hobby.

So much fun to see how beautiful Kansas can be in the fall. We drove on secondary roads through small towns and spectacular scenery. We learned that Kansas is not flat. Nothing like seeing thousands of sandhill cranes circling around the water at sunset! Well planned trip; good food and great birds.
