TVA trail, downstream from Ft. Henry Dam
Kingsport, TN (Sullivan Co.)
E. Wood-Pewee - 1
Observed in good light as close as 20 ft as it foraged in trees near the river.
Pale orange lower mandible; two bold wing bars.
Fortunately, it was calling, helping to eliminate Western Wood-Pewee.
This date is nearly 3 weeks past the previous late date in the state.
However, this has been a remarkable autumn for very late individuals of
several species of Neotropical migrants. New late dates have been established
for about a half dozen species.
