[TN-Bird] TOS Fall Meeting bird list

The Tennessee Ornithological Society held it's annual fall meeting in  
Manchester over the weekend Nov. 3 & 4, hosted by Highland Rim Chapter, with  
field 
trips led by John Lamb and Don Davidson in Coffee and Franklin counties.  30 
members and friends were on the Sat. field trip to sites around Arnold  Air 
Force Base and Woods Reservoir, and 15 Sunday morning to  Manchester Greenway 
and 
Old Stone Fort State Park. Birding was not was not at  it's peak at this 
in-between point in the season, but 70 species were seen  and the comradery of 
members from across the state combined with perfect fall  weather made for a 
great weekend. List follows.
Some highlights: in Franklin Co. 1 LOGERHEAD SHRIKE, and small  flock PINE 
SISKINS 
fly-over (heard first by Ed LeGrand), at least one RED-BREASTED  NUTHACH and 
several WINTER WRENS. Conditions were not ideal on Woods Res. but we  managed 
to find a couple of groups of shorebirds with more than one person  getting 
their life look at DUNLIN with a nice in-scope comparison with Least  
Sandpiper. 
Favorite mammal of the weekend had to be Daniel Moss'  black lab  puppies.
