I live north of knoxville TN and Nashville is just a 3 hour drive from my house. I was wondering if anyone knows where the roost in Nashville is address would be great. Other ?? What time of the year do they start show up to that roost site. I’ve then seen them in those numbers before would like to go over this fall to see it. Thanks in advance for the info and help. God bless

I noticed on the PMCA facebook page that the roost was around the Nashville Symphony building last summer.

There was a large roost ring visible this morning on radar at Nashville. The ring appeared to be centered southeast of town.
