[TN-Bird] Cades Cove, GSMNP CBC

The Cades Cove Christmas Bird Count was held December 31, 2010.
Fifteen observers participated in seven parties. Sixty-three
species were recorded which is the average for this count.
The weather was partly cloudy with temperatures ranging from
from the mid 40s to 60 degrees. It was quite windy with the wind
blowing steadily from the southwest, occasionally gusting
to 25 mph. The most unusual observation of the count were a
lone Red-headed Woodpecker seen in Cades Cove.
High numbers of Canada Geese, Blue Jays, Northern Mockingbirds
and Starlings were seen. Eastern Meadowlarks and Wild Turkeys were
scarce possibly due to the ten inches of snow which blanketed the
area on December 26 and remained until the 30th. No Pied-billed
Grebes, Ruffed Grouse, or Red Crossbills were recorded.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
