[TN-Bird] Re: Blue grossbeak

Carole,

It's good to see that one can still find some interesting birds in
that area.  I sadly discovered Turkey Creek after the construction
which ruined the wetlands had already begun.  I know of at least a
couple Knox area birder who will not patronize any of the businesses
there...
