Red-necked Phalarope - Kingston Steam Plant  8/27
While roaming the Kingston Steam plant ash ponds, late this afternoon 
looking for interesting photos a very kind birding gentleman waved me 
over to point out three Red-necked Phalaropes in one of the upper ponds.

I apologize now for my rudeness in not introducing myself, and for not 
getting his name either. But I would like to offer a sincere thanks to 
that gentleman.
A few photos, for those interested;

I thought that I was taking a photo of Canadian Geese landing until I 
looked closer ... In the mix was a Graylag and a white goose (not sure -

snow goose?)

One last side note ... I watched these Chinese Geese come in and rest at

the boat ramp parking lot next to the Naval Reserve Center on Alcoa 
Highway, in Knoxville. (on Tuesday)
