[TN-Bird] Lesser Yellowlegs

Herb Hodge Rd, Washington Co., TN (Austin Springs Area along Watauga River)
March 28, 2008 - 6:00pm

3 Lesser Yellowlegs
3 Greater Yellowlegs
4 Pectoral Sandpiper
1 Osprey

It was interesting to watch the Osprey raise up in the air after an 
unsuccessful dive into the water.  After it gained 20-30 feet of 
altitude it stopped flapping, pulled its wings in close and quickly 
shook itself from head to tail to get rid of excess water, doing it 
quickly enough that it dropped no more than a foot before resuming 
flight.  A few minutes later it made a successful dive and flew off with 
its catch to a tree on the hill down stream of the Austin Springs bridge.
