Outings are typically held on a Saturday morning, and guests are always welcome. In case of inclement weather, you may contact the trip leader (if one is listed) for last minute changes or cancellations. We also list outings scheduled by other area bird clubs or organizations which are of special interest to our club.

Two Separate Outings Planned:
Time: 7:00 AM until noon
Leader: Paul Serridge
Comments: Meet on the Mauldin Road side of the park near the baseball complex to bird a variety of paved and natural surface trails in the park. The park entrance is at 840 Mauldin Road, Greenville (opposite a FedEx facility and the junction with Ridge Road). On entering the park, drive ~ 200 yards and turn left into a parking area behind the Little League ball fields. We meet at the trailhead at the upper corner of this parking area.
Time: 8:00 AM until 10:30 AM
Leader: Denise DuPon
Comments: We're offering this slower-paced walk for anyone not up for a full morning of birding. Meet at the Spanco Drive parking area next to the old Conestee mill and dam at 8:00 AM to bird a section of the paved trail, planning to be done by around 10:30 AM.
When: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Where: Brevard, the Davidson River, and the Blue Ridge Parkway
Time: 7:00 AM until late afternoon
Comments: Meet at 6:00 AM at the Hardee's on US Highway 25 in Traveler's Rest to carpool, or at 7:00 AM at Hospital Fields in Brevard, NC. Bring lunch, water, and snacks. We'll start at Hospital Fields and another nearby area, hoping for Willow Flycatcher. We'll make several stops along US-276, including Sycamore Flats, Pink Beds, and the Buck Springs trailhead. Then up the parkway to the Mt. Pisgah trail parking, and the nearby picnic area for lunch. We'll then move south along the parkway, stopping at some overlooks to look for birds before heading to the Shining Rock trailhead, hopefully for the Alder and Least Flycatchers. Finally Devil's Courthouse, before returning home. For directions or more information, contact Jeff.
