[TN-Bird] Island 13

Lake Co, Tn. 
Mississippi River
Good news for those who like to bird Island 13 which is known for some great 
birds.
The gate is down!!  Talked with the man who is leasing the land that you cross 
to get to Isl. 13  and birders are welcome. 

I was there this morning and the habitat is good.  All the water is right there 
in front of you when you walk out onto the sandbar.  It extends North to the 
Jetty and then south. All in a good range to see and not a lot of walking.  
There was about 100 shorebirds. It was really windy.  I had 1 Greater and 1 
Lesser yellow legs,30+ Least Sp. one semi palmated plover, and 2-3 other 
species that I just couldn't get on with the wind and the distance and the 
hills of sand.
