Following up on Mort Massey’s find of the Snowy Egret, Dollyann and I went out 
to the Eagle Bend fish hatchery in Anderson Co. around 2:30 this afternoon. We 
indeed found the SNOWY EGRET. It was our first ever record at the hatchery and 
an Anderson County bird for us and, bringing our all-time species list at the 
hatchery to 178 species. That’s NOT counting the Long-tailed Jaeger that Mike 
Nelson had out there just after we left a few years ago!

We also had 61 Killdeer (over 100 there last week), 47 Least Sandpipers, 2 
Great Egrets, and 5 Green Herons.

Great birding,

Ron Hoff & Dollyann Myers
Clinton, TN
