June 10, 2023

Have you ever wanted to go birding or wondered what type of birds live in the Southern Appalachians? Birds are everywhere but they’re particularly abundant in Hampton Creek Cove State Natural Area where neo-tropical migratory songbirds, like the Golden Winged Warbler, come to spend their summer. Join us for this beginning birding walk to learn tips on how to listen for birds, spot their movements, then look for marks to help you identify them. This hike will be led by experienced birders but designed for beginners. This is a great opportunity to test out that new camera or pair of binoculars, or just explore the sights and sounds of Hampton Creek Cove!

This hike will be slow and methodical. Plan to hike less than three miles in open field habitat before returning to their cars. We hope participants will join us after this hike for the SAHC Drop-in Social at our Little Cove Creek Preserve. The distance from Hampton Creek Cove to the Little Cove Creek Preserve is 8 miles (16 minute estimated drive time).
