Honey Bee: The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by humans! One honey bee would have to fly 3 times around the globe to make 1 pound of honey!
Appalachian Cottontail: Due to their eyes slightly protruding from their head, cottontails have almost 360 degree vision! There is a slight blind spot of about 10 degrees directly in front of them.
Northern Saw Whet Owl: This owl is endemic to the Spruce Fir Forest of the Appalachian region. They're about the size of the palm of your hand!
Golden-winged Warbler (Perched or in Flight): Golden-winged Warblers are neotropical migratory songbirds whose populations have been in decline. In the southern Appalachian mountains, they nest and breed at high elevations, then migrate to Central and South America in the winter. A group of warblers can be referred to as a "confusion", "bouquet", "fall", and a "wrench" of warblers.
