Birding Bedford Lake & Normandy – Saturday, 18 November 2017

bedford_lakeThe next meeting of the Lebanon Birding Club (John W. Sellars Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society) will be Saturday, 18 November 2017. Melissa & Roy Turrentine have graciously invited us to have lunch with them near Normandy. Afterward, we will head to nearby Bedford Lake for some birding.

birdwatchingWe generally scope the lake for wintering waterfowl and perhaps catch a few small birds flitting & gleaning in the trees nearby. In years passed we have seen Bufflehead, Gadwall, Goldeneye, Red-breasted & Hooded Merganser, Lesser Scaup, and Ring-neck ducks among others, and dozens of songbird species. If time permits, we will visit Normandy Lake just up the road in Coffee County. Last year adult & juvenile Bald Eagles, among other species, were spotted above the dam. If interested in the casual atmosphere at the Turrentine home, or in joining the group for the birding at Bedford Lake and elsewhere, please contact Melissa or Roy for details. —
