We were delighted to first hear and then see our first Chimney Swifts here  
on Friday, March 26.  Since I noticed on FL Birds that they are reporting  
some there, thought I'd note the arrival here.  Nice.
Found a 4 nest "heronry" on Saturday afternoon near Tellico Dam with one  
nest being occupied by a Great Blue Heron.  All on one TVA power  standard... 
 Also observed a pair of Osprey trying to construct a nest atop  a nearby 
standard.  Several pieces there, but the one carried in while we  watched got 
dropped.  Hope they are successful.
We also had two Blue-headed Vireos at Maryville College on March 21.  
Can you tell we're ready for Spring?
