[TN-Bird] Nesting cattle egrets

Yesterday (June 29) while conducting some shoreline assessment work on
Watts Bar Reservoir, I found approximately 6 active cattle egret nests
with young on a small island near Kingston Fossil Plant property at
Clinch River Mile 4.  This island also had at least a dozen
double-crested cormorant nests  that I reported on earlier.  Young
cormorants, great blue herons, and black-crowned night-herons were also
observed on the island.
