Saw the Bald Eagles nests, and the pairs of eagles are getting ready to hatch their young...be sure to take your binoculars for viewing of the eagles nests....you might get lucky and see one of the Eagles in flight while on your visit there.

I am beginning to believe that Dover TN is my favorite small town in Tennessee. It's an area rich in history, scandal, and natural beauty. Cross Creeks NWR is one of many wetland preserves/refuges in the area, primarily for migratory birds. Its not as "sexy"...More
