February 6, 2010 
Greene County: Kinser Park (KP), Greeneville, and nearby areas 

Birds were active today, many of them feeding vigorously in open areas in the 
chilly, damp weather. I spent about two and a half hours birding and recorded 
the following: 

Gadwall (14) 
Ring-necked Duck 
Wild Turkey (36) 
Northern Harrier 
Winter Wren (KP) 
Golden-crowned Kinglet (3) 
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 
Hermit Thrush (KP) 
Brown Thrasher (KP) 
Cedar Waxwing (400+, Greeneville) 
Fox Sparrow (5, KP) 
Swamp Sparrow 

Interesting note on Fox Sparrow-- 

This is only the second time that I have found more than two in one day in 
Greene County since I began keeping records sixteen years ago. The other 
occasion was also on February 6--in 1996. On that day, I also found five. The 
location was a private property in western Greene County that I visited along 
with James Brooks, Jim Holt, Jo Anne Routledge, and Larry Routledge. We were 
responding to a report of a possible Pine Grosbeak, which proved to be a false 
alarm, but we found a nice offering of birds nonetheless. 

Where did fourteen years go?
