Birding McLemore Cove in Walker County, GA

  • Jan 6, 2013 · 9:00 AM

A day after our Sandhill Crane outing, we will travel south from Chattanooga to beautiful McLemore Cove in Walker County, GA. This V shaped valley is formed by Lookout Mountain and Pigeon Mountain. The cove itself is protected from development, and an outstanding place for bird watching. We will be looking specifically for Northern Harrier on this trip. The Harrier is an amazing raptor that hunts over the fields. We should also see a variety of other birds including Red Tailed Hawks, blackbirds, Red Headed Woodpeckers, and more.

Wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers - prepared for cold, windy weather. Bring your own binoculars, a bag lunch, and a warm beverage in a thermos. We will have a spotting scope to look at perched birds. This Meetup is limited to 20 people.

Rain cancels this outing.

Meeting info:

We will meet at the BiLo at 3801 Tennessee Ave, Chattanooga, TN (St. Elmo) at 8 am and caravan to our destination. Questions? Call the leader Jeff Hunter at[masked]-7866.

    Sometimes birding is great for the birds, but this one was great for the people and the beauty of the location, light on the birds (:

    The weather is looking good for Sunday! If we are lucky, we might see a Fox Squirrel. These squirrels are much larger than our Eastern Gray Squirrels. Jeff[masked]
