Loud Birds in the Sky

Living on the boundary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, we are very accustomed to all sorts of wildlife, including birds. But sometimes, we get some really loud birds in the sky.


Wow, that’s loud!

The ranges of the Appalachian Mountains make for terrific training grounds for our fighter pilots, so we do get buzzed by them every now and then. We don’t really mind since they are so fantastic to watch.

As always, our thanks to the men and women who keep us safe.
