I stopped by the dam at Percy Priest Lake on Tues afternoon and refound the 
Long-tailed Ducks.  After scanning the lake for 15 min and not finding them, I 
walked down to the waters edge and they appeared only 40-50m offshore.  Of 
course I left my camera in my truck and as soon as I got back down to the 
waters edge with the camera, they flew out of sight to the south.

I stopped at Cook Public Area and found an Eared Grebe, which is presumably the 
same one from across the lake.

The gull numbers are down to very few with only a thousand or so Ring-billeds 
roosting in the middle of the lake.
