  • Sassafras Mountain (map)

Two-day Pro Birder Training Module:  Friday, April 28 & Saturday, April 29, 2017 - $150.
Sassafras Mountain/Southern Appalachian Foothills, Pickens County
Instructor: Tim Lee (see bio below)

Join us as we bird South Carolina’s Blue Ridge! This time of year, we could see a variety of migratory birds as well as resident birds and maybe a few winter residents, such as kinglets and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, that have not departed. We will spend part of our time birding at Sassafras Mountain, South Carolina's highest point, were we may see Common Raven and Dark-eyed Juncos. We will also hit other area hotspots in the southern Appalachian Foothills.
