July 3-4, 2011 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 Mud 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!!
