About this trip

Springtime in the Blue Ridge is something we all look forward to and enjoy, not the least because it signifies the return of the Neotropical migratory birds that breed in the southern Appalachians. An outstanding place to see and hear them is so-called “Warbler Road”, a 13-mile-long interconnected series of US Forest Service and county roads that descends 2,600 feet from the Blue Ridge Parkway to the James River Valley. In May, when both breeding birds and migrants heading further north are present, as many as 25 species of warbler can be found in one day. Because of the diversity of habitat and differences in elevation along this route, Warbler Road offers a great variety of birds (in addition to warblers), including woodland and field species, ducks and waders. We will be staying near Troutville, VA- very close to our birding locations.

Kevin was a super guide!

Aaron was a great guide! Due to weather (wind), he switched our location to Warren-Wilson Owen Park which was a fabulous hotspot for Warblers. We ended up with 67 species, two FOS for me. Look forward to more trips.

We had a wonderful weekend. Kevin Burke is a fantastic guide - enthusiastic, knowledgeable, aware of the skill levels of the birders so that everyone learns something. In a 4 day weekend (one afternoon, one morning, two full days) we saw 83 species, 20 different warblers. We went to a variety of environments (lakes, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Jackson Park in Hendersonville), each with different migrant bird populations. The Holiday Inn was fine (as expected), and we all went out for meals together that were quite good, especially the Corner Kitchen. Very highly recommended! We’ve done both Spring and Fall Ventures Birding Warbler Weekends. Spring has more colorful birds that are easier to see (fewer leaves), while Fall has more birds all together. Both are fun.

This trip was wonderful. It covered a large number of bird habitats throughout the entire state of Oregon. Our guides were very well organized and everything went very smoothly although there was always room to be flexible. Our accommodations were very good. Both guides were very very knowledge and friendly, helpful, and considerate. In all, a memorable birding trip with over 200 species viewed.

This was a delightful experience. The views from the peak of the parkway were outstanding, the warblers were darting through on the fall migration, and the forested lovely trails from the Pisgah Inn to the overlook parking lot made for a perfect morning.
