Burrell’s Ford is a bridge over the Chattooga River in Rabun County in the farthest northeast corner of the state, but this seven-mile dirt road offers great birding. Drive or walk along Forest Road 646 from GA 28 and look and listen for breeding species like whip-poor-will, Swainson’s and worm-eating warblers, or ovenbirds in summer. Also breeding here in small numbers are red-breasted nuthatches, and they can be found year-round. In winter you might get lucky and find common raven or (if you are really lucky) red crossbills.
