Pickwick area
Hardin Co. TN
I had to check a problem a friend of mine was having at his house near  
Decaturville, so that's kinda close to Pickwick. I spent about an hour and a  
half and found the following. At the dam, they are dumping water from 14 
gates  and there were a few thousand gulls fighting each other, Great Blue  
Herons and the turbulence for the tumbling fish. There were about 7 or 8  
Herring Gulls of various ages and a single Lesser Black-back of the race  
"graellsii" nearing adult plumage and the rest that I saw were Ring-billed  
Gulls. I 
got a couple of photos of the Lesser B-b and put one  on my birds of 2010 
web page.
From the dam on the upper lake there were a few Herring and Ring-bills on  
the railing, a dozen or so Pied-billed and Horned Grebes plus 4 male  
Red-breasted Mergansers. A run down to Bruton Branch produced 9 Common Loons, 8 
Golden-eye and 3 Bald Eagles plus the regular grebes.
I wished that I'd had more time but I'll take any time I can get looking  
through the Pickwick birds!  
Good Birding  !!!
