The Knoxville TOS announces the following field trip:

Saturday, February 6, 2 p.m. from Knoxville
Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge, Birchwood, TN
Leader: Robin Barrow (865-297-2572, braveladyrobin@xxxxxxxxx)

Meet at the Stokely Building parking lot at 320 N Cedar Bluff Rd. for
carpooling from Knoxville. We can also stop at Lenoir City to pick up
some folks—call me if you need this. We’ll arrive late in the day
(around 4:15) to catch the birds as they come in to feed and stay
until after sunset, then grab a fast-food dinner before returning to
Knoxville by 8:30 p.m. Sandhill Cranes are the target birds, but a
good number of ducks are possible, and there is good sparrow habitat
nearby. We will stop along the Hiwassee River to scan for shore birds
and snipe on the way down. Spotting scopes are recommended.

The snow should clear up before we leave, but it will be windy and
cold. Long johns are recommended.
