From 10 till 10:55 this morning at the Eagle Bend Fish Hatchery in Clinton, 
Anderson County, Tennessee, I saw the following shorebirds:

Least Sandpiper - 1
Spotted Sandpiper - 1 (alone on the upper pond)
Pectoral Sandpipers - 9 or 10 (I'm pretty sure they were all pectorals but 
could have missed something - by the time I got my scope out I could only 
relocate 3)
Killdeer, of course - many

There's fairly extensive exposed mudflats on two of the lower ponds but I'm 
not sure what attracted that Spotted SP to the upper one.  It was walking 
along the very edge of the bank.

Cliff and Barn Swallows
2 Belted Kingfishers (maybe 4 but it could have been the same 2 that I saw 
twice in different locations)

A new home for Mom, no cleanup required. All starts here.
