Чем вы займетесь

We will meet at Keith's house in Pittman Center, have a quick orientation to the area and birding, and then head out on foot to explore the community of Emerts Cove, a section of Pittman Center, one of the richest bird areas in this part of Sevier County. We might elect to drive a short distance to a local pond and horse pasture which are often very rich in bird life. But for the most part, we'll walk for about 2.5 hours, maybe a bit more, and explore the wooded areas, forest edges, tree and hedgerows and grassy and weedy fields for a variety of bird life. Spring and summer are always better because migrant birds have returned from their wintering grounds to breed in this area and bird song is much richer. But autumn and winter are still great times to explore the bird life in Emerts Cove. During our walk, we can talk about rich history of Emerts Cove and Pittman Center as well as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

FALL Songbird migration is a great time to look for migrants and winter birds from the NORTH are moving in! Spring and Summer bring early migrants and breeding birds. There is always an abundant richness of bird life in the area!
After we have explored the area for about 2.5 - 3 hours, we'll return to Keith's home and depart.
Other things to note
We will walk rain or shine, cold or warm, unless it's pouring and we'll try to reschedule. Wear appropriate weather and climate gear. A hat always helps with sun and any insects, bring sunscreen.

We will be exploring the community of Pittman Center, TN and specifically, the Emerts Cove section, which is a rural residential and farm community adjacent to the Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Emerts Cove boasts one of two covered bridges in Sevier County, TN and an historical cemetery that includes gravesites of Revolutionary War soliders and the first European settlers to this area in the late 1700's.

Keith is an incredibly knowledgeable birder and great teacher, and this is a fantastic experience for any level of birder! The experience takes place in a beautiful region of TN as well. Keith and Ruth are very welcoming, and their property is a birding haven.

This was a great start to a wonderful day. Stayed in Cosby. Birding 3 hrs with Keith—saw and learned lots. Obligatory drive thru G’burg, lunch in Pigeon Forge, back to Cosby entrance to Great Smoky Mtn Nat’l Park for 5-mile hike. Keith is very knowledgeable and fun to spend time with.

I highly recommend 'Bird Watching for Everyone'. Throughout my experience Keith showed great expertise and passion for bird watching and the great outdoors. I am thrilled that this experience was a part of my time visiting the area of the Smokey Mountains. I had not gone birding prior to this experience but Keith was very welcoming and helpful. I learned a lot.

Kieth is extremely knowledgeable and supremely kind and friendly. We immediately felt comfortable and enjoyed our time with Keith and the other participants. Keith took the time and energy to try and meet each participant's individual needs. We would book another tour with Keith and recommend others to do so without any hesitation.

Keith helped us find two sought-after species, the Common Merganser (Lifer Bird) and Louisiana Waterthrush! A great morning of birding with an uber-knowledgeable guide. We will definitely do it again!

This was mine and my husbands first bird watching activity and it was certainly a delight! I knew a little about birds but came away with much more knowledge than was expected. Keith made us feel right at home and even though it was 32 degrees it was the most relaxing 3 hours i have spent outside in a long time. I know have a bird app i'm using, learned about a better bird seed and looking forward to some great birding books. Well worth the time and money.
