[tn-bird] Purple Martin (Greene Co., TN)

Alice Loftin and I observed three (maybe four) Purple Martins this
evening in eastern Greene County--two or three in Afton and one nearby
in the Tusculum area.  Today's martins were two days earlier than the
earliest ones we observed last year.

We also saw a patch of Bloodroot blooming profusely near the mouth of
Frank Creek in eastern Greene County.  The roadside area where we saw it
is a reliable spot to find it, so we weren't surprised at its presence;
however, we were pleasantly stunned to see such a large number of well
developed flowers.

Purple Martins and Bloodroot--a quintessential spring pairing in Greene
County, Tennessee, USA, North America, Earth, Solar System, Galaxy Milky
Way . . . .
