Land trust hosts birding tour

Written by 

A Birding Eco Tour is set for Thursday, June 9. The hike is held by The Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust (HCLT) will hold a Birding Eco Tour on June 9 led by Highlands Plateau Audubon Society members. Hikers will have the chance to identify indigo buntings, red-eyed vireos and black-throated blue warblers, among others.

According to the one of the hike leaders, Don Shure of the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society, this time of year is ideal for observing these birds, as the colors are vibrant and the calls will be sharp during nesting season. The Highlands Plateau has been designated an Important Bird Area by state, national and international bird conservation organizations.

Eco Tours are $5 for HCLT members and $35 for nonmembers, including the easy, guided hike, lunch and a HCLT membership. 828.526.1111 or
