Please forward this to the Tennessee birds listserve.  Gabby and I birded the 
Roan Creek valley south of Mountain City along TN 167 on Saturday, June 13.  
Had a singing Savannah Sparrow along the highway at the community of Neva 
(literally at the sign that says Neva).  Also a Willow Flycatcher near the 
Johnson County Airport a few miles north of Neva.  Further south on TN 167 
along Roan Creek, where the valley narrows, I had at least four singing 
Yellow-throated Warblers in sycamores along the stream.  I assume these are the 
race albilora that breeds mainly west of the Appalachians.  

Hope you are doing well.
