The first bird out my door yesterday (9/13) morning was a calling Veery.
I made usual Cravens House rounds looking for a few migrants and had
another Veery, 3 Swainson's Thrushes, a Wood Thrush, and later in the
day watched a nice Gray-cheeked eating a poke berry.  The gray-cheeked
is a little earlier in migration than I am used too.

Observed 1 Common Tern above Nickajack Dam in Marion County on 9/13.
