Woods Reservoir, Franklin Co.
14 birders met up for the John W. Sellars Chapter of TOS bird outing around Woods Reservoir and Coffee County. It was a beautiful day. At Woods Reservoir we had lots of Common Loons (seen and heard), Am. Coots, Pied-billed, and Horned Grebes, Ring-billed, Bonaparte, and a 1st year Lesser Black-backed Gull, Lesser Scaup, Mallard, Green-winged Teal, Gadwall, Hooded Merganser, Bufflehead ducks. Sandhill Cranes (seen and heard), Bald Eagles, Winter Wren (seen and heard), both species of Kinglets, White-breasted, Red-breasted, and Brown-headed nuthatches were seen and heard. The Brown-headed Nuthatch was a lifer for 4 of the birders. The ponds in Coffee County were mostly void of ducks. The Hickerson Rd Sod Farm had more sod removed than I have ever seen. We had Gadwalls in the pond, Killeen and Eastern Meadowlark, and a N. Harrier, finally we had 35 Sandhill Cranes at Lake Lola on Fountain Grove Rd.
Thanks to all who join in the outing.
