The Nashville Fall Count was held on September 21 and totaled 115 species, about average for this area.  It included parts of Davidson, Cheatham, Williamson, and Rutherford counties, but Percy Priest Lake itself was not counted this time. Birds or numbers of interest included 809 Blue-winged Teal(mostly at Radnor Lake and Bells Bend), 2 Yellow-crowned Night-Herons in Rutherford Co., 3 Bald Eagles and 2 Osprey in Cheatham Co., 13 Spotted and 14 Solitary sandpipers, 1 Olive-sided and 1 Willow Flycatcher at Warner Parks, 3 Scissor-tailed Flycatchers in Rutherford Co., and 7 Red-headed Woodpeckers, 1 Sedge Wren, and 1 Golden-crowned Kinglet all in Cheatham Co. Thank you so much to all who participated.
