Benton and Henry Counties, TN Saturday, 2011 Nov. 19 8:30am-4:15 pm Fifteen birders, including David Kirschke from East Tennessee, enjoyed the NTOS sponsored trip to Pace Point and the Britton Ford areas. The weather was surprisingly warm and conditions were reasonably good for viewing during most of the day. On our way to Big Sandy, we stopped at a spot on Lower Big Sandy Road and had nice views of a LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE. Pace Point produced a RED-NECKED GREBE that spent a good deal of time diving and so was observed by only a few of the group. It was also nice to see several COMMON GOLDENEYEs and close up views of a number of HOODED MERGANSERs. On the Britton Ford side we got several new duck species and added a WHITE-WINGED SCOTER that spent much of the time trying to sleep. We finished the outing at Paris Landing State Park, where the wind substantially increased, making viewing difficult. Everyone enjoyed the RED-HEADED WOODPECKER found in the picnic area. At the end of a long but satisfying day we had tallied about 60 species. See the NTOS website for additional field trip details.
