I birded Doodletown Road yesterday from approximately 8:30 to 1:30. It was a delightful day and the birds did not disappoint. My highlights included 10 warblers: Canada (2), Cerulean (4), Blue-winged, Hooded, Redstarts, Magnolias, Yellow, Black-throated Blue, and the best look I've ever had at a Tennessee, down low, bathing in a little stream. I also encountered the elusive (for me) Bay-breasted, which was a delight. Conversations with other birders revealed there were Kentucky, Worm-eating, Cape May, and Black and white warblers, as well. A Yellow-throated Vireo, Scarlet Tanager and a bunch of Baltimore Orioles rounded out the scoring. What a wonderful hobby we have!
