[TN-Bird] WW Scoter still present (Old Hickory Lake)

I went out to Old Hickory Lake (Davidson Co.) see if the storm blew anything 
interesting in...
not much of note, but the White-winged Scoter is still hanging out with the 
raft of ~20 Ruddy
Ducks on the upstream side of the Dam. The bird was much closer today, and 
allowed decent
record shots (I'd be glad to send them to those interested).
 
Only Gulls I found amongst the thousands of Ring-billed were 5 Herring (all 1st 
and 2nd year birds),
and a dozen or so Bonaparte's diving off Snow Bunting Peninsula. Also noticed 
that the Horned Grebes
(17 total) are starting to get some breeding plummage. 
 
Red-breasted Nuthatches also present still in the pines on the Nature Trail 
near the Dam, and the Bald 
Eagle nest (a distant view from the road) had an adult in the nest, as well as 
an adult perched a few
feet higher... 
 
Good birding,
