Dollyann and I made run for the Swallow-tailed Kites being seen lately along 
highway 107 in Washington County. We arrived about noon and didn't see anything 
right away. We ran into another birder and he said they had been seen Sunday. 
We drove north up route 107 a bit and looked around Jackson Bridge Road but 
didn't have any luck. When we went back towards the Enon Baptist Church, we 
passed the other birder and he said he had just seen one. We pulled into the 
church parking lot and saw one of the kites hawking insects over the church 
parking lot. This church parking lot is very near where Clarks Creek Road hits 
highway 107, both just north of the Eli Master Road intersection with 107. 
Awesome bird!!!

On the way back home we stopped in at Eagle Bend Fish Hatchery in Anderson Co. 
There we had a few waders, listed below.
Stilt Sandpiper - 1
Least Sandpiper - 3
Lesser Yellowlegs - 1
Pectoral Sandpiper - 1
Killdeer - 75

Great birding,
Ron Hoff and Dollyann Myers
Clinton, TN
