Subject: Ridge Junction and future trips

A group of us met at Ridge Junction on the Parkway yesterday morning.
Aside from a spectacular sunrise and a very pleasant temperature there was
some pretty good migration going on. through the gap and around the entry
road to Mt Mitchell.
Highlights included several small family groups of Red Crossbill,
Red-breasted Nuthatch, a handful of Scarlet Tanagers and Rose-breasted
Grosbeak, lots of hummingbirds flying across the road and a nice variety of
warblers, such as Cape May (50+), Tennessee, Black-throated Green,
Black-throated Blue, Blackburnian etc.
Complete list at

We have several trips coming up and a few spaces still available:

September 6: Warbler Workshop in Jackson Park, Hendersonville, NC
September 13: Ridge Junction Migration, Asheville, NC
September 15: Orchard at Altapass, Burnsville, NC
All details on the Ventures website.

Good birding this fall,

Simon RB Thompson
