[TN-Bird] Ensley Bottoms

This morning Carolyn Bullock, Linda Zempel and I  ran the regular "Pits 
". There were several hundred shore birds in breeding plumage. The 
Dunlins, Stilt Sandpipers, White-rumped Sandpipers and Dowitchers were 
beautiful. I cannot remember seeing 50+ Dunlins in breeding plumage 
there before. There were two lagniappes: 5 fledged Shrikes huddled 
together on a barbed wire fence being fed by two adults and, in 
addition, a  male Scissor-tailed Flycatcher feeding in the field below 
the TVA levee.
