A Hooded Merganser (female or second year male) was found in Shady Valley, Johnson Co., TN today (6/17). Shady is the state's highest mountain valley at 2800 feet elevation. This is the first summer record for this species in Shady Valley in five years. A similar bird was present June 1997, June 1998 and May to Aug 2000. It is notable that the bird arrived in connection with the cold front which passed thru the area Thursday. Let's go birding..... Wallace Coffey Bristol, TN
