Janace and I spent three days exploring the Smokies and making stops in between there and Kingsport. Some of the good things that we saw were Sunday (4/4) Dutch Bottoms: American White Pelicans (5), Double Crested Comorants (30), GSMNP (Roaring Fork Drive) Black-throated Green Warblers (2) Monday (4/5) Clingman's Dome Rd: Ruffed Grouse (m-1) Tuesday (4/6) Chimneys Picnic Area: Blue-headed Vireo, Black-throated Green Warbler and tons of wildflowers (see below) Alum Cave Bluffs Trail: Black-capped Chickadee, Blue-headed Vireo, Dark-eyed Junco Wednesday (4/7) West Prong of Pigeon River behind Tanger Outlets: Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Northern Rough-winged Swallow, Eastern Bluebird, Yellow-rumped Warbler Tailwaters of Douglas Dam: Great Blue Heron (25+ ), Great Egret (1), Black-Crowned Night Heron (8), Osprey (2+), Red-tailed Hawk (2), Ring-billed Gull. Note: this is a very good place with good habitat for other species. I believe that all of these were in Sevier County, TN.
