ABOUT TENNESSEE BIRDING TRAILS
When searching for sites by one of the four options (Region, Featured Species, Species Groups, or Season), select options within only ONE search feature at a time. Selecting options in multiple search boxes (and where they are not compatible) will result in "No Results."
Sites in RED are hotspots. These are the best places to go birding.
Sites in GREEN are not hotspots, but can be wonderful and are worth visiting when in the area.
Spring and Fall - March through May, August through November
Summer - June and July
The letter scores are the relative birding quality at a location in the given season. Birding varies dramatically by weather and numerous other factors and it can vary greatly, so the scores are general birding quality.
A = can be excellent birding for the species and species groups listed
B = good birding, lots of species can be found, but not as awesome as an A
C = Birding can be pretty slow outside the expected resident species
