We made a quick trip to the Ten Islands area of Douglas Lake in Cocke county 
on Wednesday evening (8/9/07).  The mudflats had broadened (lake elevation: 
970.5) and shorebirds were dispersed throughout, many too distant for 
definite i.d.  Least and pectoral sandpipers numbered over 100 each, and 
semipalmated plovers, lesser yellowlegs, and spotted, solitary, 
semipalmated, and stilt sandpipers were present.

Best bird was an early,  molting adult American Golden-Plover.  Photos
