Blue Ridge Parkway North Professional Review and Guide

"This section of the Blue Ridge Parkway runs very close to the escarpment with the terrain steep and the south- and east-facing coves providing some excellent birding opportunities. The more disturbed areas support a lot of white pine stands and meadows adding to the bird species mix.

Habitats: Cove and oak-pine forest, white pine stands, and early successional habitat. Key birds: Summer: Veery, Cerulean, Wormeating, Hooded, Black-throated Blue, Blackthroated Green, and Kentucky Warbler; American Redstart; Rose-breasted Grosbeak; Scarlet Tanager. Winter: Common Raven; Redbreasted Nuthatch; Ruffed Grouse."
