Radnor Lake State Natural Area
Davidson County, TN
2019 April 2

With the clearing skies and warming temperatures I decided to
visit Radnor Lake this Tuesday morning, and it did not disappoint.
I walked just from the west parking area to Long Bridge and back
rather than the complete circuit around the lake. There was an
interesting contrast of winter visitors and spring migrants.
Plenty of winter visitors as I counted at least 30 YELLOW-RUMPED
WARBLERS, of which a couple males were close to full breeding plumage,
10 GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS and 5 RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS. Also seen
were 2 WINTER WRENs, 2 BROWN CREEPERs, and 1 HERMIT THRUSH. This was
contrasted by BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERs being back in force, at least
10 found on my short walk, a single BLACK-AND WHITE WARBLER and
a solitary BLUE-HEADED VIREO, both near the dam, plus 7 BLACK-THROATED
GREEN WARBLERs of which 3 males were singing.

A wonderful morning at Radnor.
