TN birders,

Couldn't sleep this am, so was on the road by 5:30am.  Headed up Firetower Road 
at the foot of White Oak Mtn, and was rewarded by calling chuck-wills-widow and 
whip-poor-will, one each.  Had the whip on the ascent, and the chuck on the 
descent.  Also, had another chuck as well as a calling great horned owl at the 
top of a gravel drive at the extreme end of Owl Hollow Road near where it 
enters Hamilton Co.  The driveway is barricaded, but has enough room to pull 
off the road safely.  Also, had a early calling yellow-throated vireo about 
midway on Owl Hollow Rd.  Most of the night birds called between 5:55 and 6:15 
am EST.  None of these were TN year birds, but all four were new for the county 
year list.
