Birded Eagle Bend Fish Hatchery in Anderson County beginning at 11:15 this 
morning.  I didn't find the American Golden Plover but then I'm notoriously 
unable to locate that species.  Lots of Killdeer and 3 Least Sandpipers was my 
shore bird quota for the morning.


Had better luck with Waterfowl.  2 Pied Billed Grebes, Blue-Winged and 
Green-Winged Teal (had a devil of a time sorting them out but I estimate 8 blue 
and 5 green), two female Northern Pintails, a female Ring-Necked Duck and 4 
American Coots plus the usual Mallards and Canada Geese.  All the ducks except 
for many of the Mallards were females (or perhaps eclipse males).  


Other interesting birds included 3 Eastern Meadowlarks, an Eastern Phoebe, a 
Belted Kingfisher (maybe 2), a Green Heron and am odd looking white Pigeon with 
a black tail off by itself in one of the drained ponds.
