I apologize for such a late report on the BBC Field Trip to Clingmans Dome 
on Saturday, July 18.  We have had house guests Sunday through noon today.  
However, the trip went well!  We had beautiful weather (in 50s near the top) 
and a fine group of nine members.  Unfortuanately, the birds were few and 
far between.  Thanks to Aubrey Abernathy's handy bird song player, we had 
great looks at several secretive birds (Blue-headed Vireo, Northern Parula and 
Black-throated Green Warbler).  The trip list included:  Wild Turkey, 
Broad-winged Hawk (3, good looks), Killdeer, Mourning Dove, Common Nighthawk, 
Chimney Swift, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Downy Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, 
Eastern Phoebe, Eastern Kingbird, Blue-headed Vireo, Red-eyed Vireo, American 
Crow, Common Raven (1), Barn Swallow, Carolina Wren, Winter Wren, American 
Robin, European Starling, Cedar Waxwing, Northern Parula, Black-throated 
Green Warbler, Eastern Towhee, Field Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco, 
Northern Cardinal, Indigo Bunting, Pine Siskin.  See next posting for upcoming 
trips as the southward migration is underway!
