The first interesting numbers of American Wigeons (8) were seen at the Weir
Dam on the river below South Holston Lake  today (10/28).  I also had 3 at
Musick's Campground.  I suspect this may be the early arrivals of wintering
wigeons at the Weir.  We usually have a fairly good group spend the winters

A group of 13 Common Loons was also near Musick's Campground along the
Virginia-Tennessee stateline on South Holston Lake this afternoon.  An Eared
Grebe and two Pied-billed Grebes were nearby.

Let's go birding.....
