Birding

Nature is calling! And it can sound like a tweet, squack, chirp or maybe a hoot. Bird-enthusiasts keep a keen eye on on the Appalachian Mountains because it has an abundance of unique wildlife, and in particular, birds. The Pisgah National Forest in Madison County is home hundreds of species of birds and if you’re lucky you may be able to spot many of them.

Whether you’re a expert bird spotter or new to the hobby, you won’t be disappointed by taking a trip to Madison County, North Carolina. Just 20 minutes north of Asheville, Madison County is home to the Appalachian Trail and extremely remote forests. Grab a birding brochure and see how many you can find!

“This brochure was a hoot! We took it with us on our hikes and a had a great time identifying all the birds we saw. The checklist made it feel like a treasure hunt!
