Burrell's Ford Professional Review and Guide

"The area near the Chattooga River along Burrell’s Ford Road is not only beautiful but offers some of the only remaining old-growth hemlock–white pine forest in Georgia. Both Red-breasted Nuthatches and Golden-crowned Kinglets have been found here in summer and are probably breeding in very small numbers; this is a good place to look for both species in winter. In summer this nice gravel road offers looks at many of Georgia’s mountain-breeding warblers.

There is camping here as well. Key birds: Red-breasted Nuthatch, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Swainson’s Warbler, Whip-poor-will, Worm-eating Warbler, Ovenbird, Louisiana Waterthrush. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, and helpful general information."
