Yesterday I birded the Blue Ridge Parkway from Blowing Rock to Asheville
with my main focus being the wonderful wooded swamp areas near Mile Post
298 (just north of Grandfather Mountain). I have it in my mind that a
migrating Olive-sided Flycatcher would find this area suitable for a rest.
Several hours in the area did not produce an Olive-sided but the place was
very birdy with "tons" of Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green,
Chestnut-sided, Hooded, and Canada warblers. I stopped to check out
"100's" of occupied tall, dead, snags but it was always just a lone Cedar
Waxwing. Ugh!! The Waxwings along with Barn Swallows and Juncos were the
most abundant birds of the day. Mrs. Walker, Mr. Carlson, and Mr.
Pippen!!!!!! I will be returning to Mile Post 298 repeatedly during the
next two months. I thought you would want to know.
