That's the problem here... west of me is several hundred acers of pasture / wood islands / " COWs " a fallen Hemlock Tree last year over the farm pond brought in King Fisher's and a pair of Eagles.. I guess after a week it was not what the Eagles wanted and moved on.. we have 2 fly ways here on the Plateau.. Wood Land birds.. North - South in Migration up the spine of the Plateau. Then the Tennessee River east side of the Plateau for aquatic / shore birds.. Every January they have a Sand Hill Crane Festival at Birchwood TN.. several thousand attend. Sand Hill Cranes start coming in around late Oct and stay till March.. along with Whooping Cranes and other wading birds.. Great Blue Heron - Tri-Color - Cattle Egrets -- and ducks.

Just up from the view site at Hiwassee is the Cherokee Museum for Trail of Tears at the edge of the river..
This is 2018 event calendar.. About 40- 50 miles north of Chattanooga TN and it's cold / wet / windy as I have read.

In the city we have tawny owls starting in the evening, the swifts screaming as they hunt for insects, sometimes the crows, jackdaws and magpies go crazy when the peregrine hunts the swifts.

The morning starts with the usual song, blackbirds, the (European) robins, the zilpzalp, blue and great ****, and some little brown bird that hides in the trees singing a song I do not know.

Barred owls, an Indigo bunting, robins, blue jays (so many blue jays), chickadees and dozens other song birds. Two coyotes yipping out toward the lake. Two feral cats fighting. Mosquitoes. A deer blew at me from behind the pond. If it was a doe, she probably has fawns. Wind through the pine and balsam boughs and then later the tinkling of a breeze through aspen leaves. Mosquitoes. So many mosquitoes it's hard to spend much time outside without a Thermacell or spray.

Thanks for the link. The problem is the bird is difficult to see, so I need to identify it by its song. And it is not in the sound records that I have.
