Birding & Sisters Weekend

Had a really fun sisters’ weekend in Nashville recently. Stayed downtown at Printers Alley, enjoyed the music at Tootsies and some of the other ‘honky-tonk’ venues, ate (twice) at Jack’s BBQ and even ventured out for a line dance or two. Non-birding sister, Kathy, very kindly found a park (Radnor Lake Natural Area and Wildlife Refuge) a few miles south of town where we were able to spend a few hours hiking and birding. Here’s a few shots from the park.

Fun to see them so close and get a real sense of the size difference.

    I’m so glad one of the hawk shots came out ok! Very pretty! And wow, I guess you did get some good shots of the turkey! Send some to me!

    Did you say that turkey was spotted by Vicki, or IS Vicki? I know her, so I’m confused…
