Dacus Bar
Mississippi River
Shelby Co. TN
A quick trip to the river produced: 31 Black Terns, lots of Least Terns?with a 
few adults feeding downy chicks which seems late, 1 Forsters Tern, 1 
Black-bellied Plover, Killdeer galore, 2 Semipalmated Plover, 3 Black-necked 
Stilts, 2 Solitary Sandpiper, 7 Spotted Sandpipers, 7 Pectoral Sandpipers, 
Least Sandpipers, a lot of distant peeps and 5 Buff-breasted Sandpipers (3 at 
the toe of the island and 2 at the head, strolling in and out of the grass.

The other day, I photographed 3 Wild Turkeys that were feeding on Loosahatchie 
Bar, all 3 had beards that drug the ground. All my hunter friends wanted to 
know where I had seen them. There are few large waders using the river and just 
a few DC Cormorants. The river keeps slowly dropping..........
