While in Kingsport this morning (Jan 16) I decided to swing by Netherland Drive 
and the Riverfront resturant on my way home to see if I could see the "local 
resident" Spotted Sandpiper along the rocks in the river.  I was successful in 
finding the sandpiper and then drove northeast to the first pull off past the 
old bridge.  I found Cormorants, Coots, Mallards, Canada Geese and Pied-billed 
Grebes on the water.  As I was beginnig to pull out of this parking area I 
spotted a large bird soaring.  I got out of the car and saw a 2nd or 3rd year 
Bald Eagle cruising and soaring above the river.  It is always a thrill to find 
an eagle in our area.  Maybe it was trying to find lunch before the predicted 
snow storm hits.
