The Bristol Bird Club field trip to Rankin Bottoms on Saturday, Aug 28, has 
been postponed.
The water level there is still too high, having risen some due to recent heavy 
We will try again on next Saturday, Sep 4.

Instead, this Saturday, the 28th, we will have a field trip to the Phipps Bend 
ponds.  While the
spoonbill apparently has departed, there should still be some herons & egrets 
to see, and
maybe an ibis or shorebirds.  If nothing else, it can be an introduction to the 
site for those who
have not been there before.

This will require a walk of 2 miles round trip, but on a flat gravel roadway.  
Bring water & a snack.

Time:  8:00 am

Meeting place:   In Kingsport, at theMeadowview Convention Center, at parking 
lot near entrance.
This is just off I-26.  From there it is about a 40 minute drive.  For anyone 
wishing to car-pool, we 
will need to leave cars elsewhere.
