The Long-tailed Ducks found yesterday by Tom McNeil & Cathy 
Myers at the hwy 421 boat ramp were still present, but had increased
to 6 individuals - - 4 drakes & 2 hens.  The drakes were giving their
delightful yodeling call, the first time I recall hearing it in Tenn.

Other species seen in the area were basically the same as reported
by other birders recently, with Canvasback (2), Redhead (73), & 
Greater Scaup (39) being most notable.
