I drove down and spent the last couple of hours before sunset yesterday
(06/19) at Phipps Bend in Hawkins County. I was surprised by the number of
encounters with Northern Bobwhite. I had 8 different calling males and
flushed one pair of birds. Other birds included:

Red-shouldered Hawk
American Kestrel
Green Heron
Brown Thrasher
Northern Mockingbird
White-eyed Vireo
Common Yellowthroat
Yellow-breasted Chat
Yellow Warbler
Prothonotary Warbler
Grasshopper Sparrow
Eastern Kingbird
Indigo Bunting
Blue Grosbeak
Orchard Oriole
Eastern Meadowlark
