I noted two first-of-the-year Swainson’s Thrushes on my property on DeFriese
Road in Birchwood (Hamilton County, TN) today. Some other highlights were 5
warbler species. Three Magnolia Warblers were noted this morning, along with
one Kentucky Warbler and three Tennessee Warblers. I added another Tennessee
Warbler in late afternoon. One American Redstart warbler and one
Black-and-white Warbler were also seen in late afternoon. Cedar Waxwings were
seen feeding on ripe persimmons this morning and this afternoon.
