[TN-Bird] Dutch Bottoms

5 Sep 2007
Dutch Bottoms on upper Douglas Lake
Cocke Co., TN
the lake is down a bit more & the viewing distance across the
flats to spots where shorebirds concentrate is now vast, almost
impossible for birding from shore; could not see some of the
river-channel side of several islands, so likely missed some birds.
