Got to the Cove at Concord Park in west Knox County at 12:45 p.m. this 
afternoon and found my first ever Egyptian Goose.... undoubtedly an escaped 
domestic variety and not countable but worth a look just 'cause it's so cool.  
Easily viewed hanging out near the other domestic misfits by the parking lot.  
Second most interesting bird there was a Golden Crowned Kinglet.  Not a lot of 
species.  Thought I might find some Horned Grebes as the Cove is usually a 
reliable place for them but no luck. 
On the way home I stopped briefly at the boat ramp across Northshore from the 
Marina (still in Concord Park) and found 11 Horned Grebes.
