Percy Priest Lake
Davidson County, TN
Nov. 21, 2015

It started out frosty, breezy and clear, but as the day progressed it warmed up to comfortably cool, windy and cloudy. Richard Connors guided our group of six around From Percy Priest Dam to points of interest at Cook, Seven Points, Anderson and Smith Springs Parks.

The greatest number of bird species was the Common Loon, which were in great rafts in several locations. Highlights of the day were a Bald Eagle which flew over and around the dam as the participants arrived for the field trip, and later a pair of female Purple Finches. It was a pleasant morning and the fellowship was very enjoyable.

Thanks to Richard Connors for guiding us and to those who showed up for the fun!
