What’s that song I hear? According to the Great Smoky Mountains Association, it may be the Louisiana Waterthrush, the Blue-Gray gnatcatcher, the Yellow-throated Warbler or the Blue-headed Vireo (pictured here). These are among the Smokies’ early spring arrivals whose songs can fill the air in late February and March. The next time you visit Buckhorn, check out our list of birds which inhabit our grounds. If you would like to have a “bird tour,” we can arrange for a naturalist to take you out for a bit of bird spotting. Or stop in the kitchen for a visit with Chef Robert Neisler who is our resident bird expert.
