At TVA, Lake two Caspian Terns came in with the rain to join the resident  
Least Terns and a single adult Black Tern was photographed feeding over the  
lagoons. An adult male, Ruddy Turnstone was found and  photographed just 
before the rain started and then birds dropped in through  the rain for the 
next 5 hours. Sixteen species of Wind Birds including;  Killdeer, 11 
Semipalmated Plover, Black-necked Stilts, 9 Spotted Sandpipers ( 2  young), 13 
Solitary Sandpipers, 19 Lesser Yellowlegs,  1 UPLAND SANDPIPER,  1 RUDDY 
TURNSTONE,  2 SANDERLING, Semipalmated Sandpipers ( 1 banded  somewhere in US), 
Western Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, 1 adult BAIRD'S  starting to molt 
Pectoral Sandpipers, Stilt Sandpiper, and 1 WILSON'S  PHALAROPE (photo). 
3,000+ birds today..................
The biggest surprise of the day was my first immature migrating shorebird  
of the season, a lovely Semipalmated Sandpiper photographed about 2 PM.  
Good Birding  !!!
