A nice little wave of warblers this morning in Greeneville: 

Chestnut-sided Warbler 
Magnolia Warbler (a little earlier than usual) 
Black-and-white Warbler 
Canada Warbler (hard to find in fall). 

Also present in Greeneville and elsewhere: 

Great Egret (Tusculum) 
Cooper's Hawk (immature, Greeneville, chased by two crows) 
White-eyed Vireo (Greeneville). 

Notes on Cooper's Hawk: this species is much more common than Sharp-shinned 
Hawk in our region, especially in the warmer seasons of the year. It seems to 
flourish inside the Greeneville city limits. Without making any special effort 
to find Cooper's Hawks, I record one about every ten days to two weeks, except 
during nesting season, with a large percentage of the observations occurring in 
town. They are very good at using the broken urban-suburban landscapes to their 
advantage in hunting.
