Sunday Sept. 21, 2008  
This morning 7 members of Cumberland Harpeth Audubon Society walked the  
trails at Peeler Park checking for early fall birds. This is a new metro  
Nashville city park at the end of Neely's Bend. Nashville TOS has had a couple  
field trips there but this was my first visit. The habitat is similar to  
Bottoms, old fields and treelines near the Cumberland River, so many of  the 
birds were the same ( for 3 of us who were on yesterday's outing over  there). 
We had lots of Brown Thrashers, Indigo Buntings and a few  Catbirds.
We did have one good mixed flock of warblers which we never found on  
yesterday's Shelby Park outing.
partial list:
Yellow-billed Cuckoo 1
White-eyed vireo  4
House Wren  1
Veery    1                (heard only)
Swainson's Thrush  2  ( "    " )
Gray Catbird  4
Brown Thrasher   8 
Blue-winged  Warbler  1
Tennessee Warbler  2
Northern  Parula    1
Chestnut-sided Warbler  1
Magnolia  Warbler   8
American Redstart   1
Common  Yellowthroat  3
Summer Tanager  2
Indigo Bunting   25+
