Harpeth River Greenway/Morton Mill Rd. Lake
Davidson Co.
Nashville, TN
2009 Aug. 25

Last evening after work in the slowly declining
heat, I again went down the road to Harpeth River
Greenway to check for shorebirds at Morton Mill
Rd. Lake.  The 11 calling KILLDEER had apparently
invited a solitary shorebird to set down on the
minimal mud flats.  Unfortunately, it was at the
far side of the shore, so although I had my
suspicions about its identity, I went home to get
my spotting scope.  Sure enough, living up to its
name, there was a single SOLITARY SANDPIPER, which
alternated between feeding and resting.  Thus,
I was rewarded for my efforts with a new shorebird
for the year.
