Benwood Lake AR
The lake is drying fast, shorebird numbers also following  trend. Only 15 
Avocets, 1 Black-bellied Plover, still good numbers of L-b  Dowitcher, 
Dunlin, Killdeer, Least Sandpipers, many Greater Yellowlegs with  fewer Lesser, 
Western Sandpiper, 6 Stilt Sandpipers but maybe more on far  side. Many more 
ducks now crowding in with the geese, including a new group of 9  
Twenty-one Ring-billed Gulls and a single Franklin's, fewer  sparrows but 
the patch is continually hunted by the raptors so my short time  many have 
had them hunkered.  

Just playing catch up with a few photos from Benwood Lake and points  east 
in TN.

What  is this feathered thing that lifts my heart to the  heavens.
