Beautiful photos and nice account of your trip. Since Sheree didn’t get to go, all the more reason to sign up again!
Where are the ravens? Great post!
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.

Michelle and I really enjoy reading about your excursions. We need to get out to this park and get some pictures. Been busy with house maintenance and some upcoming consulting. Hoping things will slow down a little.
HI, Thanks for looking down here. I am looking for a way to get this section more visible.
I am trying to identify a bird in southern coastal NC by sound. The closest I can come to reproducing the sound is brrr deep. The brr is held and the deep is short.
Can you help.
Not sure I can help you with that. What is the habitat? Is the bird flying? Maybe an Eastern Bluebird? https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/176156
Thanks for sharing your journey!
Thank you for your posts! Have you been to the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory?
Yes, I have. Will be there in July again, with family. Wish I was there now.
Beautiful photos. Loved the recordings! Noted on Sandhill Crane recording a Northwoods Mosquito was also recorded!
