2014: best bird outing(s)

2014: The Best & Worst This is the time of the year when writers coast. They dream up their totally subjective best and worse lists for the year that's rapidly coming to a close. Why? So they can focus on the important things...the holidays. So with that in mind:

We had several enduring bird outings this past year at Ijams, at Forks-of-the-River, at Seven Islands, at Hiwassee, at Fort Loudoun and a very, very cold one at Cove Lake. But the Ijams' Birding & Breakfast Club Hawk Watch Brunch in September at Look Rock and Osprey Nest Watch Brunch in June at Sequoyah Hills were especially memorable. The birding and breakfast brunches tend to be leisurely affairs with generous helpings of food and bird chat.

Thanks to all. 

And there's more to come in 2015, almost always on the second Saturday of the month, the first is Saturday, January 10, an indoor chat about "Winter Birds" with breakfast by Peg at Ijams. And then on February 14: a roadshow brunch to Hiwassee to look for cranes and eagles.
