Addendum to Rick Knight's post of late yesterday regarding the upper Douglas 
Lake outing by Bristol-area and Greeneville-area birders-- 

Rick offered a more complete summary of our findings than I had in my notes, 
but there are a few additions that I can provide: 

Wood Duck (2 at Rankin) 

Blue-winged Teal (about 30 birds at Rankin) 

Little Blue Heron (fly-by immature at Rankin; all-green legs and bluish bill 
seen well) 

Black-bellied Plover (2 at Rankin; viewed from eastern point of land near 
tipple by me and a few other birders along very distant eastern shore while 
main group of birders were scanning nearer shoreline from tipple road) 

Baird's Sandpiper (an additional individual at Rankin; viewed by me and other 
birders from eastern point of land near tipple) 

Eastern Kingbird (5, mostly at Rankin) 

Also--I drove home via Highway 160 through Hamblen County and found two 
Eurasian Collared-Doves at the industrial site in Lowland.
