Ką veiksite

We will meet at Keith's house in Pittman Center, have a quick orientation to the area and birding, and then head out on foot to explore the community of Emerts Cove, a section of Pittman Center, one of the richest bird areas in this part of Sevier County. We might elect to drive a short distance to a local pond and horse pasture which are often very rich in bird life. But for the most part, we'll walk for about 2.5 hours, maybe a bit more, and explore the wooded areas, forest edges, tree and hedgerows and grassy and weedy fields for a variety of bird life. Spring and summer are always better because migrant birds have returned from their wintering grounds to breed in this area and bird song is much richer. But autumn and winter are still great times to explore the bird life in Emerts Cove. During our walk, we can talk about rich history of Emerts Cove and Pittman Center as well as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

FALL Songbird migration is a great time to look for migrants and winter birds from the NORTH are moving in! Spring and Summer bring early migrants and breeding birds. There is always an abundant richness of bird life in the area!
After we have explored the area for about 2.5 - 3 hours, we'll return to Keith's home and depart.
Other things to note
We will walk rain or shine, cold or warm, unless it's pouring and we'll try to reschedule. Wear appropriate weather and climate gear. A hat always helps with sun and any insects, bring sunscreen.

We will be exploring the community of Pittman Center, TN and specifically, the Emerts Cove section, which is a rural residential and farm community adjacent to the Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Emerts Cove boasts one of two covered bridges in Sevier County, TN and an historical cemetery that includes gravesites of Revolutionary War soliders and the first European settlers to this area in the late 1700's.

Keith is genuinely passionate about birds and more importantly his love of sharing his knowledge. My husband and 2 young children (12 & 11) loved bird watching before but Keith added something special to their intrigue. We are so thankful and highly recommend this experience when you are near the Smokey Mountains.

Bird watching was brought to life with Keith. The bird watching experience was laid back yet professional and enthusiastic. We highly recommend the experience not only for bird watching but for a glimpse of Tennessee lifestyle. Keith shared a knowledge account of bird migration as well as references for future bird watching.

Oh, my. This experience is slow, beautiful, and meditative. A perfect experience for families with bright and curious children, or adults with those same qualities. We came during the “slow season” (bird wise). Keith alerted us that there wouldn’t be as many birds to see in this early week of August, and he was right. But our family loved the experience all the same. If anything, the lack of birds made the moment of discovery a little sweeter when someone would say “I see one!” Keith is not only a seasoned biologist, but a sensitive soul. My daughter said, “I could have sat with him on the back porch watching birds all day.” Me too. To be honest, I’m a guy who has never paid much attention to birds, but Keith’s love is contagious. Now my attention is directed to these miraculous little creatures that have been surrounding me all along. What draws you to the mountains? Why do you come to this part of the country? There are certainly touristy distractions to be found in this place of constant stimulation. But the really good stuff is hidden in the unexpected places. So grab your loved ones; Clear your mind, slow your breath, and look up the trees. This is a gift.

Ruth and Keith were extremely hospitable and kind. Keith provided our family with an exceptional journey around his property that they have curated for optimum bird diversity. Additionally, we took a short drive to a local meadow and observed even more species. To top it all, Keith was engaging with all members of my family including kids aged 7, 16, and 18 along with the adults. Keith has expert knowledge of birds and their habitats, and answered questions about local floral and fauna. We truly enjoyed our three hours of bird watching. Highly recommend.

Keith and Ruth are amazing! The binoculars we used were incredible. We were so impressed with Keith's knowledge of the birds and the area. Keith even shares some of his favorite birding apps and books. While nature decided to limit the number of birds, we were thrilled with what we did get to see and thoroughly enjoyed the area and company.

Wow! What a one-of-kind experience! My children, aged 9 and 13, and I participated in this experience. Ruth and Keith were both very welcoming. This is a peaceful (but exciting) easy-paced tour with just a small amount of walking around the hosts’ beautiful property and neighborhood, where we saw many birds. We did drive, following Keith, a short distance to another area and had excellent luck spotting additional birds. Keith is very knowledgeable and he has a great eye for identifying these birds in the trees and in flight. He was very kind and informative and tailored the tour to us, being very helpful in explaining information to absolute beginners. The binoculars they lent us for the tour were great! I am just smiling as I write this review and remember our experience. Perfect activity for vacation and relaxation! New hobby?! I think so!
