Wildflower Pilgrimage

Thank you to the organizers of Gatlinburg's Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage for inviting me to speak yesterday on one of my favorite topics: Migratory Birds 

This is the 66th year of the festival that runs April 19-23, so there is still plenty of time to enjoy one of the 143 planned activities. 

It is always an honor for me to return to my hometown, the place I fell in love with nature and, in particular, birds. 

Thank you Judy Collins for inviting me.

P.S. As I write this from my second floor deck, I'm listening to a singing wood thrush. Can life be any sweeter?
