Central Node for TOS/UCR Forays in Fentress County, Tennessee

 

Caption.

 

A foray was conducted in Fentress County 14 June 1979 by members of the Tennessee Ornithological Society (TOS).  Results of this foray were published in The Migrant (Nicholson 1981) in conjunction with a list of all species then known to have occurred in Fentress County, so the following list (Table 1) of 97 species found in Fentress County during the 1979 Foray may be of interest to those who wish to view the Foray data in isolation.

    An Upper Cumberland Region (UCR) Foray was conducted in Fentress County 2228 June 2013, the second such birding project to be conducted in this county.

    The general protocol for conducting a foray in the UCR may be consulted at a page accessible via this link:
