Radnor Lake State Natural Area
Nashville, Davidson County TN
Oct. 2, 2013

Overcast skies gave way to steady rain on today's NTOS-sponsored Radnor Lake walk. This kept the numbers low for both "observers" and "observees".

The group did see one late-season Eastern Kingbird along the dam road. Later a Great Egret flew past along the lake's edge. The egret stirred up a Great Blue Heron and at one point the two birds flew across the lake together.

Below is a list of birds observed:

27 species
