A short walk this evening with my wife Bonnie to
see the birds at Morton Mill Road Lake turned up
another lonely shorebird species.  This time
accompaning the KILLDEER it was a single SEMIPALMATED
PLOVER, feeding on the very limited mud flats.  If
we only had some decent shorebird area in Davidson
County we would certainly get some more numbers.

As we returned to our parked car we looked up and
saw a flock of 30 COMMMON NIGHTHAWKs flying to the
SW, our first sighting of this species this year.
It is always nice to see them.
