About this trip

An easy morning watching a variety of wintering species. We recommend good hiking boots. 

The Bynum Bridge area is arguably one of the best birding locations in the Piedmont, and is located in the small town of Bynum. Habitats are varied and include riparian woodland, meadows and an old industrial mill site, all of which provide several excellent places to birdwatch. Built in 1922, the old bridge over the Haw River spans over 800 ft, and affords eye-level views of birds in the trees and is the perfect place to look for both migrants and winter visitors along the river.    

On this walk we hope to see indigo bunting, field sparrow, red-headed and pileated woodpeckers, cedar waxwing, yellow-bellied sapsucker, hooded merganser, brown-headed nuthatch, hermit thrush, winter wren, fox sparrow, both kinglets, yellow-rumped warbler, barred owl and hopefully the local belted kingfishers, bald eagles and red-tailed hawks. Finishing time for the walk is 1PM.

Ventures birding is the real deal. We scheduled a half-day local trip near Asheville while friends were visiting from New York. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. His ability to identify nearly every bird by even a brief snippet of song made spotting them really quick. Besides that, he’s a nice guy, easy to talk to, and fun to spend time with. Ventures Birding has our enthusiastic recommendations, and we look forward to more time with them!

This was a magnificent trip! Great leaders who were knowledgeable about the area as well as the birds. They were respectful of the country, people and environs of Iceland which made the trip especially enjoyable. At the end of the 8 days on Iceland, we felt we had seen highlights of the country having circumnavigated the whole island on Highway 1. It was lovely and perfect. Both guides were excellent drivers and I never felt insecure along the challenging roads. Had all 9 of us been in the 9 passenger van, it would have been uncomfortable and unpleasant. Since one of the group rented an additional vehicle, that major issue was alleviated. We were all grateful for that extra vehicle! Iceland was awesome. The food was great. Accommodations were excellent. Guides were the best.

Simon took six of us into a lovely ascent through multiple habitats and many bird species. It must have been challenging as our group ranged from rank beginner to expert, yet we all interacted comfortably with our guide. Nice job by ventures and a great day! One highlight was our best ever looks at a singing Swainsons Warbler on territory.
