Shelby Bottoms
Radnor Lake
Davidson Co.
Phillip Casteel and I birded phase 3 of Shelby Bottoms this morning to see  
if the Fox Sparrows had returned yet.  We had 7 species of sparrows,  including 
3-4 Fox Sparrows, one of them singing nicely.  Others encountered  were 
Field, Song, Swamp, White-crowned, White-throated and Towhee.  NTOS  will have 
field trip to this spot on November 17.  
The Surf Scoter, seen yesterday at Radnor Lake, was still present late this  
afternoon.  Valerie Brust and I enjoyed watching it for 45 minutes as the  sun 
went down and the reflections on the water were gorgeous.  It started  
bathing, splashing quite a bit, then preened a little and finally tucked its  
under its back feathers for the evening.  It was in the company of 1  Horned 
Grebe out from Grassy Point a bit towards the road.   Other waterfowl remained 
the same as yesterday, except that the Northern  Pintail had left.  We also had 
our FOS Hermit Thrush along the road.
