2015: favorite group birding trip

2015: 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:

My favorite group birding trip came in May. We ventured at Sunset to Chota, the site of the legendary Cherokee town of peace. We had a picnic in the grass and listened for Chuck-will's-widows (Antrostomus carolinensis) and whip-poor-wills (Antrostomus vociferus).

We heard Chuck's at twilight, but no whips.
