Kathy Noblet, Gil Derouen, Reece Jamerson, and I birded water areas in Sullivan 
Cty today.  A summary follows:

Steele Creek Park--we started there to look for the Snow, Cackling, and Greater 
White-fronted Geese that had been seen there.  We didn't find any of them 
there, but found a CACKLING GOOSE with a large flock of Canadas just East of 
the Bristol Motor Speedway.
