In Washington Co. at the pond along the road between Bowmantown Ruritan (Hwy 
75) and Willie's store (Oakland Rd.) I found a Green-winged Teal and 1 male & 
1 female Northern Shoveler.

In Sullivan Co., at Boone Dam was 1 female Red-breasted Merganser.

At Osceola Island below the Weir Dams, I saw four (4) female Common 
Goldeneyes among the numerous Buffleheads.  This was from the first parking lot 
the bridge.  Above the Weir Dams near the top of the island were several Canada 
Geese that seemed to be quite short-necked.  Does anybody around here know 
about which race they might be?

Just below South Holston Dam there were eleven (11) Lesser Scaup (if somebody 
finds any of these to be Greater, please correct me).

Musick's Campground at twilight had no apparent birds.
