Qué harás

We will meet at Keith's house in Pittman Center, TN for a cup of coffee or tea and a scone/muffin if desired, have a quick orientation to the area and birding, and then head out on foot to explore the community of Emerts Cove, a section of Pittman Center, one of the richest bird areas in this part of Sevier County. We might elect to drive a short distance to a local pond and horse pasture which are often very rich in bird life. But for the most part, we'll walk for about 2.5 hours, maybe a bit more, and explore the wooded areas, forest edges, tree and hedgerows and grassy and weedy fields for a variety of bird life. Spring and summer are always better because migrant birds have returned from their wintering grounds to breed in this area and bird song is much richer. But autumn and winter are still great times to explore the bird life in Emerts Cove. During our walk, we can talk about rich history of Emerts Cove and Pittman Center as well as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. FALL Songbird migration is about over but that means winter birds from the NORTH are moving in! So there is still an abundant richness of bird life in the area! After we have explored the area for about 2 hours, we'll return to Keith's home and depart.

Donde estarás

We will be exploring the community of Pittman Center, TN and specifically, the Emerts Cove section, which is a rural residential and farm community adjacent to the Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Emerts Cove boasts one of two covered bridges in Sevier County, TN and an historical cemetery that includes gravesites of Revolutionary War soliders and the first European settlers to this area in the late 1700's.
