This afternoon on old hickory Blvd past Bells Bend, at the site of the old sod
farm, I individually counted 91 Savannah Sparrows as they flew across the road
from East to west, into the grass of the old farm. The fact that they were
moving across the road in my field of view made it easy to actually count,
rather than make a blanket estimate, but obviously actual numbers present are
Ninety-one is nowhere near a state high count for winter (which is 950,
according to Somershoe & Sloan) but it is the most I've ever seen together, and
may be a high count for Davidson county.
