Brown Thrasher and Eastern Towhee are spotted too, good. Can add 8 new species straightaway, if I can find them all before the match start at 10!

Should go straightaway from the airport to explore the venue properly for the 1st day. I need a guide for the university tour: any takers? :)

9am start for the next 2 days, tough. Naturally, dawn birding at Shelby Bottom and Radnor..maybe should forget Radnor and bird Warner park(heard it's HUGE) instead? I only want to see passerines..

Now is there a Nashville Audubon chapter..
