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.

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.
