Eleven KTOS members braved the elements to check out the birds at Kingston
Steam Plant in Roane County.  Persistent light rain and fog hampered
visibility.  We searched the pines near the entrance, but were unable to
locate the Brown-headed Nuthatches.  The best birds seen were a pair of
Stilt Sandpipers.  We also had an excellent look at a Cooper's Hawk, who
perched on a sign, apparently unconcerned, as we approached.
