Bells Bend
Old Hickory Blvd
Davidson Co., TN
2018 March 21

Went to Bells Bend again today and met Craig Carmen there to check on
the teal. To my surprise, despite the cold front that came through
yesterday, the male CINNAMON TEAL continued with 8 BLUE-WINGED TEAL in
the ponding area of the farm field across from the main sod farm field.
However, I note that the water level in the wet area is substantially
reduced. Yesterday the birds were feeding by tilting their bodies
straight up much of the time. Today they were just sticking their heads
below the water to feed.

Also found the HARRIS'S SPARROW again today after missing it the past
several days. As usual, it was seen in the company of WHITE-CROWNED
SPARROWs who were feeding right next to the road in the area of
Old Hickory Blvd between the hay bales and the two gray buildings.
After a truck sped past I could not refind it.
