Saw 4 Bobolinks (2M, 2F) at Cherokee Farm in Knoxville this evening saw out 
6:30 pm.  Birds were between the JIAM Bldg and the golf course in tall grass.  
Males singing.

Saw another bird that I wanted to call a female Dickcissel north of the 
building near where paved path comes down from road and joins bike path.  Size 
and shape were right.  Female blackbird chased it out of grass and I got brief 
look when landed atop tree.  Yellowish wash on breast, but could not make out 
facial markings as it bobbed in the wind.  It flew back down to the same spot 
it had been chased out of but stayed out of sight.  Not sure enough to call it, 
but ...
