Fall neotropical migrants along the Blue Ridge Parkway
Join birders Aaron Floyd and Scott Jackson-Ricketts for a fall migration bird walk. We will meet at milepost 240 at 8:00AM and bird a variety of habitats including nearby trails. Expect wood warblers and other neo-tropic migrants such as orioles and grosbeaks, as well as dragonflies and butterflies.
As the morning warms up, hawks will be catching the thermals for another day of their south-bound migration…especially broad-wings. Later in the day, consider joining Jim Keighton of Blue Ridge Birders fame at milepost 235. Mahogany Rock is a well-known and attended hawk watch site. So, bring a lunch, chair, big hat and your scopes and binoculars for a fun filled day of birding in the Blue Ridge!
