Dollyann & I made a run to the Eagle Bend fish hatchery in Anderson Co. this 
morning and found a lot of shorebirds. The highlight was a gorgeous breeding 
plumaged STILT SANDPIPER. This was a new species for us at this site, bringing 
our all-time species total here to 166. Other shorebirds included:

Semipalmated Plover – 12
Spotted Sandpiper – 11
Solitary Sandpiper – 2
Lesser Yellowlegs – 10
Least Sandpiper – 81 (our second highest total ever; high was 98)

Great birding,
Ron Hoff & Dollyann Myers
Clinton, TN
