Birding with Kevin Calhoon at Chickamauga Chattanooga National Military Park

  • to
  • Cravens House

    108 Point Park Road, Lookout Mountain, TN (map)

    35.009731 -85.344238

  • We will be in the lower lot at Cravens House at 8am
  • Join Tennessee Wild as Kevin Calhoon leads a birding walk starting at 8 am.  Kevin is the Assistant Curator of forests at the Tennessee Aquarium.  He is also the aquarium's avian expert.  We will start the day on the slopes of Lookout Mountain at the Cravens House, and hike from there on the NPS trails. Please bring binoculars and be prepared to hike a couple of miles on forested trails.

    Kevin led a birding trip for us last year on the John Muir Trail.  He is an expert at identifying birds by their song, and has bird watched at Cravens House for years. This trip will coincide with spring migration, so we should see many species of songbirds migrating between the tropics and their northern breeding range, as well as birds that breed here in east Tennessee.

    Registration for this outing will begin on April 4, 30 days before the outing.  If you attended Kevin's outing last year, please allow another Meetup attendee to have the opportunity to attend this outing.  Thanks!

    Sorry for the late notice folks. We were ever hopeful, but it is a total washout.

    The weather has indeed gone from bad to worse. The radar is looking bad. After talking to Keven, we have decided to cancel. Sorry for the late notice folks!

    it is really storming here in Soddy. Is the weather down there any better? It is almost too poor visibility to drive off the mountain pretty soon.

    Hey! We're two days off. Don't be discouraged by the forecast! First of all, the Cravens House has a wrap around porch. So we can stay dry there. Secondly, Kevin said that light rain could make the birding even better. And it should be fantastic! We might walk some trails. Perhaps 2 - 2.5 miles. So bring a rain jacket and a small umbrella. And don't forget your enthusiasm! This will be great! You'll need to Google directions for Cravens House. It is just uphill from Ruby Falls on the slopes of Lookout Mountain.

      I set the RSVP up incorrectly. And chose not to punish those that slipped in before I realized .

    I had the RSVP settings set incorrectly. My fault. Registration will not open until April 4. If you were able to register, you can remain so. I won't penalize anyone for my mistake.
