I stopped at Musick's Campground, Middlebrook Lake, and Paddle Creek on my way 
back from Wytheville this afternoon.

I saw quite a few Canada Geese and Mallards, but no Coots.

Paddle Creek

The Dunlin was filling out breeding plumage--getting reddish-brown on the back 
with quite a bit of black on the belly.
