This afternoon  there were over 300 ducks in a raft at Cove Lake State Park, 
Campbell County, TN.seen well from the end of the fishing dock looking West.
I was quite surprised. I usually only see a raft like this about every other 
year around mid to late November when we have a first inclement weather 
incident of snow and ice.
It was quite a treat to see this many ducks in Campbell County!  Cove Lake is 
definitely a location where good birds come and go quickly, most likely a 
resting place  of short duration..

My count was  228+ REDHEADS..a high number for the park for me



2 American Widgeon

62 Gadwall 

29 Hooded Mergansers

3 Bufflehead

1 Pied Billed Grebe

1 Bonaparte's Gull

12 RIng Billed Gulls

A Red Breasted Nuthatch was heard

Canada Geese are pairing up and 2 pair of Red Shoulder Hawks were calling
