Brown Headed Nuthatch, Red Headed Woodpecker on a nest tree, and Canvasbacks 
were 3 of the 60+ species on one of  my top 2 birding days ever in East 
Tennessee. With Mark Alston. 
BH Nuthatches (2) were at Booker T Washington state park at the fishing pier. 
They were in a dying tree directly across the parking lot from the restrooms. 
The RH woodpecker was chasing other woodpeckers away from a hole in a large 
tree. It was near the end of Blythe ferry road on the west side of the river. 
It was in a stand of large trees directly across from the cemetery. 
The snow geese, white fronted geese, and the canvas backs were all seen from 
the gazebo at Hiawassi refuge.
