Navigation Fall bird migration is an active time in the North Carolina mountains. It is here that migratory birds are preparing to journey south to their wintering grounds in the Southeastern U.S., Caribbean, Central America, and South America. This makes Chimney Rock a great hotspot to catch a glimpse of a lot of northern birds before their mass, seasonal exodus. Join a local birding expert during this two-hour excursion to locate and identify some of these “snowbirds”. Pre-register for this event at ChimneyRockPark.com.
