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

I really enjoy the virtual tours and Simon’s travelogue. I especially loved South Africa because I did a safari in Kenya and fell in love with Africa.

Vermont is beautiful and I enjoyed my first trip there. We saw most of our target birds, plus some surprise species. The trip was well planed and we got to many different habitats. There are some great restaurants i Vermont; who knew?! Accomadations were comfortable and quiet.

West Virginia was beautiful and the trip was fantastic. Simon is astounding with his skills locating and bringing out birds. The trip was well planned and executed, even with the obstacles of pandemic.

Great time. Simon and Chris are awesome hosts. Took us to many beautiful spots, found a lot of bird species. Equally accommodating to experienced birders and relative novices (us). Keep up the good work, chaps!
