Tennessee Warbler Oreothlypis peregrina

10,000 Birds

The Tennessee Warbler is a poster child for the boreal forests of Canada and the far northern United States. As autumn arrives and the days get shorter and cooler Tennessee Warblers make their way south to Central America and northern South America, sometimes as far south as Ecuador. Of course, the Tennessee Warbler never entirely loses its insectivorous ways and it will eat whatever bugs it finds in the flowers as well.

Stop the Tennessee Sandhill Crane Hunt! (Again)

10,000 Birds

Yes, the earth has gone around the sun twice since the uproar from birders and other lovers of wildlife managed to convince the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to table the idea of hunting Sandhill Cranes in Tennessee for two years. Tennessee started a festival around the event, just for wildlife watchers. The cranes liked the superabundant food, and a lot of them decided to hang around and spend the winter in Tennessee.

An Educational Mixed Flock

10,000 Birds

My mind was already trying to place it, coming up with Northern Parula (though I saw no real blue), Red-eyed Vireo (though it seemed too small), and Tennessee Warbler (though the lack of a good look at the face made that a tough call). It was a Tennessee Warbler and the identification was clinched by the tiny, pointed bill, the thin eye-line, and the green back and wings. Tennessee Warblers have a thin, dark eye-line and a small, thin, sharply-pointed bill.

If you know me well, and who doesn't, then you know I like Tennessee jokes (insert your own dang Kentucky joke here): Like businessmen everywhere, the college sports executives [attending the IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum ] bemoaned the high cost of doing business these days. And the University of Tennessee had paid $5 million to get rid of its football coach, Derek Dooley, after three losing seasons. The buyouts at Tennessee for coaches totaled at least $9 million.

Wood-Warblers Heading South

10,000 Birds

Every spring the wood-warblers come north bedecked in breeding finery and every autumn they head back south again in more muted colors. The trickle of migrants becomes a flood and then slows to a trickle again, leaving us New Yorkers with a host of Butterbutts and few other wood-warblers to tide us over until spring. This fall I again spent time out in the field documenting the wood-warblers moving through and enjoying the last looks I would get at them for six months or more.
