From December 14 through January 5 each year, tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and checklists go out on an annual mission – often before dawn. For over one hundred and thirteen years, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has driven dedicated people to go out and count birds on the annual Christmas Bird Count.
The next meeting of the Lebanon Birding Club (John W. Sellars Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society) will be Saturday, 17 November 2018. 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.
We generally scope the lake for wintering waterfowl and perhaps catch a few song birds flitting about & gleaning from the trees nearby. In the past 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 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. — email@example.com
