It's almost that time and the Vol Air Force is winging into town
sporting their finest orange.  :-)

Sunday morning (30 August) a BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER and an adult male
AMERICAN REDSTART were having a 'friendly discussion' in our west
Knox Co backyard... perhaps debating Eric Berry's odds at the Heisman.

On Monday (31 August) a pair of BALTIMORE ORIOLEs were joining
the robins, bluebirds, Red-eyed Vireos, and squirrels in getting
an early start on the as-yet unripe Blackgum fruit.

Now all we need is a Tennessee Warbler.

Go Vols!

Other recent non-orange highlights included a BLUE-WINGED, CHESTNUT-
SIDED, and BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLERs with a 4-warbler day on Sunday...
rare in August.
