Harpeth River Greenway
Bellevue, Davidson Co., TN
2014 July 27

This Sunday morning I walked the greenway past the Morton Mill Road
Lake. To my surprise in addition to the typical Great Blue and Green
Herons, there was a Great Egret at the shallow end of the lake,
which is significantly drying up due to the summer heat. Unlike the
herons, it was not happy even with my distant presence, and flew
away shortly after spotting me. Also a surprise was a female Yellow
Warbler. I'd not seen one at the lake since the beginning of June.
I finished with 28 species for the morning, a number of them different
from my list there yesterday. Hopefully we'll get some rain today to
help replenish the water level here and at Walter S. Davis Blvd.
Marsh near TSU.
