Lola and I spent part of the 4th in the cool air birding around Crossville, TN. 
 Early in the morning we had to wear long sleeves - crazy for July.  We first 
checked out the Bridgestone/Firestone Centennial Wilderness WMA.  The grass had 
grown up but we had some nice birds with two Henslow’s Sparrows, several 
Yellow-breasted Chats, Indigo Buntings, Field Sparrows, Eastern Kingbirds, and 
heard several Northern Bobwhites.  We also went down the mountain to the 
Sequatchie Valley and drove around looking for Scissor-tailed Flycatchers.  We 
only found a male and female on Ninemile Cross Road northeast of Pikeville.  
They were hanging out over the hill just east of the traditional transformer 
nest.  Lovely day!
