About this trip

Join Clifton and explore the birds of the NC foothills along the beautiful Catawba River. Southbound birds tend to follow rivers and streams during migration, and the Morganton Greenway provides access to these ‘hotspots.’ This is the very beginning of fall migration so there should be a good amount of birds on the move! We will be on the lookout for various warblers, vireos, tanagers, and many other neotropical species. 


Greenways in general provide excellent and important foraging habitat for many songbirds during their migration and can be hubs of activity in the spring and fall. We will hope to see: Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Red-shouldered Hawk, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, White-eyed, Red-eyed, and Yellow-throated Vireo, Fish Crow, Northern Waterthrush, Black-and-White Warbler, Tennessee Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, Cape May Warbler, Northern Parula, Magnolia Warbler, Pine Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, Yellow-breasted Chat, Summer and Scarlet Tanagers, Baltimore Oriole and more.

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.

You should be aware that this trip was cancelled by Ventures Birding, and I have a credit with them for the full amount paid.
