Four NTOS members met at Peeler Park, Madison, Davidson County TN for our NTOS July 16th Field Trip. Weather was very pleasant for mid-July. It was mostly cloudy, 78°f, with a bit of spitting rain towards the end of the hike. We saw and heard 34 species (listed below). I counted the birds at the last curve of the road before Peeler Park where there is a horse field. A good time was had by all.
Species seen include:
Great Blue Heron
Eastern Wood Pewee
Northern Rough-winged Swallow
Other species of interest: Tree Frog, Banded Water Snake, White-tailed Deer
Next month, I hope you will join us for a trip to Edgar Evins State Park on August 20th.
