Yesterday, April 20, I observed approximately 12 dc cormorants sitting
on nests on a small island (Boyd Sharp's island-he visits this area
often) near Clinch River Mile 4 adjacent to the TVA Kingston Fossil
Plant peninsula in Roane County.  I observed the island and nesting
cormorants from the Ladd Landing Access Area which is located off
Centers Ferry Rd. east of Kingston.  There were at least 2 great blue
herons nesting among the cormorants.
I will continue to monitor the nesting activity to document young, etc.
