Harpeth River Greenway
Davidson Co.
Bellevue, TN
2012 June 23

An early Saturday morning walk along the Harpeth River Greenway
next to Morton Mill Road in Bellevue resulted in 35 species.
To my surprise an immature BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was standing
on the rock peninsula that extends out into the drying up small
lake.  It is only the second time that I've seen one on the lake.
While looking and listening at the far end of the walk for a
YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT that has been calling for the past several
weeks, to my pleasant surprise I instead heard an alternate song
of a NORTHERN PARULA. After about 5 minutes of waiting I finally
got to see him up close and personal. Also of interest was a female
ORCHARD ORIOLE next to a begging immature.  Another AWOL bird was
the male BLUE GROSBEAK that has been singing at the lake for the
past several weeks. I'll have to walk again tomorrow morning to look
for the birds I missed today.
