About this trip

An easy morning watching a variety of wintering species. We recommend good hiking boots. 

The Bynum Bridge area is arguably one of the best birding locations in the Piedmont, and is located in the small town of Bynum. Habitats are varied and include riparian woodland, meadows and an old industrial mill site, all of which provide several excellent places to birdwatch. Built in 1922, the old bridge over the Haw River spans over 800 ft, and affords eye-level views of birds in the trees and is the perfect place to look for both migrants and winter visitors along the river.    

On this walk we hope to see indigo bunting, field sparrow, red-headed and pileated woodpeckers, cedar waxwing, yellow-bellied sapsucker, hooded merganser, brown-headed nuthatch, hermit thrush, winter wren, fox sparrow, both kinglets, yellow-rumped warbler, barred owl and hopefully the local belted kingfishers, bald eagles and red-tailed hawks. Finishing time for the walk is 1PM.

Excellent trip! Kevin was flexible and persistent. He adjusted to the early fog so that we had good birding the entire day, and was very persistent in finding the bird that several of us were eager to see (Cerulean Warbler). He was patient with describing identification details and excellent at identifying songs and calls. It was a lovely day!

We came for the birds and the birds came for us! Really enjoyed our experience with Kevin Burke, who led us to multiple locations throughout the day in search of spring migrants. Kevin was attentive, informative, relaxed, and he made sure that we saw what he saw (or heard). And there were a lot of good ones, including Wilson's Warbler and Black-billed Cuckoo. We had such a great experience that we can't wait to sign up for our next trip!

Trip had us walking along the Green River which provided opportunities to see various warblers but even more were heard by our small group. Kevin shared some of his favorite birding sites with us so that added to the success and enjoyment of the morning.
