Very nice find! No other Brown-headed Nuthatches are currently known to be
in Cumberland County. Stephen Stedman's bird website
http://iweb.tntech.edu/sstedman/NuthatchBrown-headedUCR.htm has details for
the Upper Cumberland region.

While conducting vegetation surveys this morning on Catoosa WMA (Cumberland
Co., TN) I was surprised to hear and then see a Brown-headed Nuthatch in the
stand I was working in (Fox Place, western half of Catoosa, UTMs 691358
3994234). This stand is part of the UT oak savanna restoration project, and
has been burned several years ago. The canopy is sparse, dominated by
scattered burned snags (both pines and oaks) with an occasional living oak
as well. Being new to TN I am not extremely familiar with this species'
status and distribution in the state, but a quick search of Ebird and a few
other online resources indicates that Brown-headed Nuthatch is a good find
in this area at any time of the year. In fact, this may be the first record
of this species listed on Ebird in Cumberland County (correct me if I'm
wrong). Any other intel or discussion would be appreciated! 
Good birding all-
