Approximately twenty-five birders, beginners to experts, enjoyed a bird walk
at several sites on the Blue Ridge Parkway north of Asheville today. Simon

The walk was a benefit for the Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society.
The bird of the day was the Cerulean Warbler, of course. If there are those
who are not aware (as I was not until recently) of this birds endangered
existence, please read about it at the Cerulean Warbler Atlas Project.

treat for such an active bird.
We also had numerous wildflowers pointed out by Larry Ferar.
