  • NTOS Spring Count The Nashville TOS Spring Count is May 5th this year.  The migrants will be present at your favorite birding spots and we need your help counting them.  Any level of birding expertise is useful, so beginning birders are welcome too.  You can contact me, Barbara Harris (harrbarbara@bellsouth.net) and I’ll give you the contact information of the area you want to count in.  Or if you don’t know where you’d like to count, I can make suggestions.  Spring count is a great way to reacquaint yourself with our transient and summering species, so don’t miss it!
