About this trip

The newly constructed Little Tennessee River Greenway in Franklin, NC goes for several miles along the Little Tennessee River and offers a pleasant stroll through riparian habitat, as well as several marshy areas. Over 140 species have been seen along the river, including: Blue Grosbeak, Indigo Bunting, Yellow-breasted Chat and Orchard Oriole. Blue-gray Gnatcatchers nest in the trees and Wood Duck, Spotted Sandpiper and Belted Kingfisher are all readily seen along the river. Hopefully we will get the chance to look at the differences between Tree, Barn, Cliff and Northern Rough-winged Swallows as they feed over the river. 

Leader: Kevin Burke

This was a great day. Clifton navigated some unexpected logistics (unposted road closure) and made a full day with tons of stops he was familiar with. I am only a year into birding and added 13 species to my list. He was the most experienced person I have ever birded with, able to ID tons of birds by ear then spot them.

This was a great trip. Kevin Burke is a wonderful trip leader. He makes every effort for everyone to see the birds. He works hard to make sure everything runs smoothly.
