Hello TTU-Brian! Glad you enjoyed the Abbotts Creek/Upper Neuse Greenway trek. I enjoyed reading about your bike-birding. Wow, a Black-billed Cuckoo – wonderful! I enjoy bird-walking at Abbotts Creek portion of the greenway. I often park at the North Wake Landfill Park, scope the capped landfill for meadow birds, then walk about 1 1/2 miles along Abbotts Creek to the intersection with Neuse River greenway. Abbotts Creek offers many habitats, including a cattail marsh and a snag forest. I volunteer for Wake Audubon and I lead many bird walks for them via Meetup. Check Meetup and you can see more field trips (well, when I post them, at least). I am focusing on northeast Raleigh locations for the next few weeks, but will get back to places like Lake Betz, Schenck Forest, Yates Mill and Mid Pines Road soon. Wake-Audubon-Meetup is the name of our Meetup; free to join. Hope you will get on Meetup and join us!
I look forward to more blog entries from you.
