A little birding time in Greeneville and western Greene County today, with a 
trip to Knoxville and back in between-- 

Snowy Egret (Greene Co., Pottertown Rd. 0.4 mile from North Mohawk Road; 
interesting observation: only 2 other personal Greene Co. records for this 
species--May 15 (2000) and May 16 (1997)); 

Osprey (Knox Co., I-40 at Holston River) 

Peregrine Falcon (Jefferson Co., I-40 at mile 420) 

Willow Flycatcher (Greene Co., Hwy. 348 adjacent to Lick Creek Bottoms Wildlife 
Management Area unit in Beulah community; this is the same spot where WIFL has 
been observed sporadically by Ben Britton and me (and possibly others) over the 
last few years; as with all Empidonax flycatchers, identification was confirmed 
by vocalization) 

Swainson's Thrush (3, Greeneville) 

Canada Warbler (Greeneville) 

Savannah Sparrow (singing male, Greene Co., Lick Creek Bottoms WMA unit in
