We wrapped up the walks at 9:30 AM. Mary Erwin, John Hay and myself went across the dam and onto the gravel road above the ecology ponds that lie to the west. We picked a few additional species there (Eastern Wood-Peewee and a pair of Wood Ducks).
Additionally, we had an article in the Kingsport Times-News about the walk this morning, July 17th with a picture! The article had some good info about the walk and had quotes from myself, John Hay, Mary Erwin as well as Donna Monroe who was one of the new bird watchers on the walk. It also mentioned the sponsors, Ward's Feed Store and the Bristol Bird Club with our website address.
BBC members helping to lead the walks were: Saturday (July 12): Mary Erwin, Roy Knispel, John Hay, Bill GrigsbyWednesday (July 16): Mary Erwin, Roy Knispel, John Hay, Lois Cox, Wilma Boy, Michele Sparks
Species List for both days. Note that conspicuously absent both days as well as 2 visits prior to the birdwalks is the Eastern Towhee.
