Great find. We had dickcissels and bobolinks in fields near where Laurel Run
Park in Hawkins County is now located in late June/early July umpteen years
ago when Fred Alsop was still at ETSU-Kingsport (probably mid to late
1970's) but could never locate a nest. I still run through there
occasionally trying to relocate them, but never any luck.
