Greene County: Greeneville and Tusculum 
I located a Lesser Scaup female this evening at the pond along Glenfield Trail 
in Greeneville. Oddly, no other waterfowl were there. 

A little later, I observed an American Woodcock in display flight over a field 
in Tusculum. I was lucky enough to get the whole concert--the "peent" ground 
call, the wing whir during flight, and the "kissing" sounds during descent. 
There's no better way to mark time in early spring. 

Also present in Greeneville: Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Purple Finch.
