WHAT'S NEW IN NOVEMBER


Have you ever thought about trying your luck and leaving out one hummingbird feeder all year round? You might be one of the lucky Tennesseans who gets a visit from a western 'winter' hummingbird. There have been over 300 documented sightings in TN alone since we started our research in 1990. In fact there are two such rufuous hummingbirds in TN right now. Both have returned to the same host home one for the 2nd year, the other for the 4th year in a row! If you want to give it a go leave one partially filled feeder hanging where you look first thing in the morning or before dark. Winter birds have no competition and spend their days searching for food, visiting your feeder and roosting on a comfortable perch usually insight of your feeder. AND if you do get a visitor AFTER November 1st and BEFORE March 15th...please contact Southeastern Avian Research.

HAVE YOU SEEN A LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE LATELY?? 70% of the population of this amazing songbird have disappeared in the last 40 years here in TN. Please help with our research to discover the reasons behind this decline. If you see one in Tennessee please contact Cyndi Routledge at 931-206-3517 with the location. Thank you.
