Ce vei face

We'll enjoy an easy, slow-paced walk through woodlands and wetlands at Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary, one of Asheville's top birding hotspots, looking for a colorful and diverse assortment of birdlife.

Participants will be outfitted with their very own binoculars for the tour and will get a brief orientation on how to use them for finding birds. Then we explore the area's boardwalks and dirt trails looking and listening for any birds that may be around. We will do our absolute best to not only get every guest good views of as many different birds as possible, either in their binoculars or through the guide's spotting scope, but to teach guests about some of the fascinating behaviors and natural history of the birds we find as well. After the walk, we will tally up all the birds in a list (using the eBird app) which will be shared with each participant at the end of the tour.

The selection of birds we may encounter is highly dependent on the season, but we usually surpass 30 species in a morning with little effort. On some spring and fall days (peak migration times) the birding can be incredible - sometimes we see over 50 species! Summer birding can be fun as young birds born in spring grow up and learn to fly, while winter birding can be great for finding waterfowl, sparrows, and finches. No matter the season, there are birds to be found!

We are all long time birders and very active in the local birding community throughout Western North Carolina. Aaron, Clifton, Michael, and Simon lead walks and birding events in the area, as well as teach birding classes at the North Carolina Arboretum and other local organizations. We are members of the Carolina Bird Club, Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society, and American Birding Association. Between us we have lived overseas and looked for birds on every continent except Antarctica. We love to share birds and nature with visitors to this beautiful part of the world.

I can't sing enough praises for this experience! Our guide, Aaron, was super friendly and knowledgeable. He successfully called birds closer at every stop and despite it being super chilly, we saw 17 species! Afterward he even sent us a link to review and learn more about each bird! We can't wait to go again in the spring!

It was a pleasant 2 hr walk around Beaver Lake, we learnt to recognize the shape and songs of about 20 birds. And the tour ends with a cookie and a warm cup of tea.

The guide, Simon, is incredibly knowledgeable. He spotted birds but even more amazing was his ability to distinguish birds from their calls and then point them out. He's a local, and knew the area very well. We came across other friendly birders to chat with, this made me feel like a part of this outdoor community. Loved spending the morning out in nature and animals.

Our birding tour with Aaron was a fantastic experience! We didn’t have our own binoculars so he lent us a few pairs and that made the birdwatching all the more exciting and enjoyable. We had never been birding before but Aaron taught us about the different birds we saw and we left wanting to try it again! Thank you, Aaron!

My girlfriend and I had so much fun learning how to identify birds and being provided with resources to continue our birding adventures on our own! We have even bought binoculars since (though not as nice as the ones provided for us for this adventure). Snacking Chocolate is also one of our favorite things now. Thank you so much for a fun morning that has changed the way we hike and also the way we sit in our back yards!
