West TN.
Once a camel gets its nose under the edge of the  tent you can't stop him 
from coming in; so here comes fall  shorebird migration. Sunday, in Dyer Co, 
off the Great River Road, 6  scattered Least Sandpipers and another 3 at 
White Lake. In Lake Co, north of 103  highway, 3 Least, a single Lesser 
Yellowlegs and a Spotted Sandpiper. Farther up  the road on the east side of 
Lake, 7 Least Sandpipers and a single Solitary.  While viewing three Neotropic 
Cormorants at Lake #9 in KY, another Solitary  Sandpiper was flushed. 
Coming through Dyer and Lake Counties, I counted 19  immature Black-necked 
Stilts. A pair of male Shoveler Ducks were seen at Mud  lake in Lake Co.
Monday at the "Pits" in Memphis, 9 Least Sandpipers, 3 Lesser  Yellowlegs 
and a Spotted Sandpiper. A pair of male Blue-winged Teal are still  hanging 
around, are mates nested nearby??  

Good  Birding!!

What is this  feathered thing that lifts my heart to the  heavens.
