I found a pair of Wood Ducks this evening at the pond along Glenfield Trail, 
located just off Old Tusculum Road in Greeneville. A short distance away, at 
the intersection of Old Tusculum Road and Highway 107, I also found a Great 
Horned Owl perched on an electric wire. 

Today's Wood Ducks just missed being winter (December-February) birds rather 
than spring (March-May) birds. Looking back at my Greene County records, I 
noticed that I found no Woodies this past winter. This is unusual, as I nearly 
always manage to locate at least one sometime in early to mid-December or in 
late February. Apparently, the atypically cold winter drove them out of the 
area this past season.
