Subject: more on Dickcissels

With his permission, I'm forwarding an email from TN State Ornithologist Scott Somershoe. This was his reply to my query about Dickcissels.
"Dickcissels are being reported as more common in many places (and more abundant in places where they are typically uncommon to rare) across TN this year. there have been a lot of reports in the upper east TN counties. In Sullivan Co., there was the first record in about 40 yrs. The general thought/idea was a lot were flooded out in the MAV (where they are ridiculously common) and they dispersed out. Seems far to go from Dyersburg (NW TN) to Sullivan Co. in the east TN mountains, but birds make big disperals when conditions in their normal breeding areas are poor."
