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.

What a great trip. Two new life birds for me. We learned so much about birds from Kevin Burke, the trip leader. Jackson Park is a beautiful location, and Hendersonville is a great place to spend time when we aren't birding.

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.
