Hone those birding skills

A guided bird walk sponsored by the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee is set for Friday, Sept. 30, near Tilley Creek in Cullowhee.

The bird walk will be led by Jeremy Hyman, an assistant professor of biology at Western Carolina University teaching classes in ornithology and animal behaviors. Hyman has been an avid birder since childhood and has several publications on bird behaviors. This walk also should be an excellent time to view the fall leaves.

Meet at the entrance of the Jackson County Recreational Park in Cullowhee at 8:30 a.m., to carpool to the location, which is two miles away. The outing will last approximately two hours. Participants should bring water and binoculars. No dogs allowed. For directions and to RSVP, contact Jill Wiggins at This email address is being protected from spambots.
