NTOS Christmas Bird Count

The Nashville CBC was conducted on Saturday, Dec. 17 and totaled 76 species, about average for the count. There was also one Count Week species, 5 Canvasbacks, at Radnor Lake. No unusual species were reported, but there was one Red-breasted Nuthatch which has not been common here this year. Three Bald Eagles were found, 2 adults and 1 immature. There was one late Indigo Bunting at Radnor Lake, an occasional winter species in the Nashville area. Thank you to all who helped with the count, and to Susan Hollyday who provided us with a delicious compilation supper.
