Brief Itinerary
Trip Description
Birding in Tennessee
in the USA
THIRTY+ species of warblers!!

Western US birders should find this trip very appealing.
Two dozen species of warblers nest in this area of the
country, and another ten or so will be migrating through
the area at this time of year, so a few days of birding in
east Tennessee in late April could provide you with looks
at over wo species of warblers.

Other highlights of this trip include Ruffed Grouse,
Chuck-will's-widow, Acadian Flycatcher, Blue-headed
Vireo,Carolina Chickadee, Brown-headed Nuthatch,
Winter Wren, Wood Thrush, Grasshopper Sparrow and
Scarlet Tanager.

Stops include a number of key birding hot spots including
Sharps Ridge, Cove Lake State Park, Cross Mountain,
Kyker Bottoms, Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge, Chota
Waterfowl Refuge and Cherohala Skyway. Then we spend
some time at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
This trip offers a lot for bird watchers and
wildflower/nature enthusiasts. Expect pleasant spring
birding in Tennessee.
