  • Nashville Fall Bird Count: September 24th The Nashville Fall Count will be held on September 24th, and we need as many birders as possible, beginner and expert alike, to cover all of the routes.  This is a good time to get out and learn those confusing fall warblers and witness the spectacle of migration.  Routes include Radnor Lake, Harpeth West, Harpeth East, Warner Parks, Shelby Park and Bottoms, Owls Hill, Percy Priest Lake, Old Hickory Lake, and Bells Bend Park.  You can stay out for just part of the day or for the whole day.  Please contact Jan Shaw at jankshaw1@gmail.com to sign up for a route.  Former route leaders please let Jan know if you are available again.
