Clark Rd., near Limestone, Washington Co., TN
Clark Rd is south of hwy 11-E, between Matthews Mill Rd & Washington College 
Station Rd.

Found earlier in the day by Roy Knispel.   I relocated it around 5:45 and Larry 
also saw & photographed  it.  
It was flycatching from the fence along the road just west of the only barn.  
This is the first record for the 5-county area of Northeast Tenn., although
there is at least one record each for Greene & Hawkins Cos.,  west of 
Washington Co.

Also in vicinity:
Blue Grosbeak
Grasshopper Sparrow
Savannah Sparrow
Summer Tanager

At nearby "Bush Hog pond":
White-rumped Sandpiper - 3
Least Sandpiper - 2-3
Spotted Sandpiper - 1
Solitary Sandpiper - 1
Warbling Vireo
Loggerhead Shrike
