4 NTOS members enjoyed milder temperatures and gorgeous weather while birding a 
new location for us, the property of Hopepark Church in Bellevue TN just west 
of Nashville.  The property is 280 acres and includes diverse habitat including 
cedar glades, deciduous forest (with many huge beech trees), a pond, and 
fields.  The most notable birds of the morning were a group of 4-5 fox sparrows 
and a beautiful group of wood ducks.
The property is in Davidson County.  It is private property and you need 
permission from the church to bird there.
