Carter Co., TN
Hampton - Piney Grove Road
We thought we had reached our peak in numbers on April the 2nd, with an
estimate of 42 Purple Finches. However, there definitely seemed to be more
today! I estimate at least 55 total today....and that is probably a low
estimate because the trees seemed full of them. I snapped a cellphone photo of
nearly 30 birds working one feeder station....and there were birds on our other
feeder station and in the trees at the same time.
