Migration heating up!
by Curtis Smalling

Latest Update: August 26, 2014

We will have our regular Wednesday walk this week on August 27th. Migration is heating up as a few true migrants are showing up like a Yellow-throated Warbler at VCCP last Sunday, Mississippi Kites down at Old Fort, first Tennessee Warblers of the year, and an uptick in hawks like Cooper's and Sharp-shinned.

For more information on birds in the High Country call the Watauga Birding Hotline at 828-265-0198. Also visit www.ncaudubon.org, www.carolinabirdclub.org and visit the Audubon North Carolina blog at http://ncaudubonblog.org/blog/ and the High Country Audubon website at www.highcountryaudubon.org
