Ensley Bottoms
Shelby Co. TN
Took 4 hours scanning through the peep flocks at Ensley. An  immature 
Coopers and a Kestrel kept the birds nervous and in the air but  rewards were 
be found. Lots of fresh plumaged immature birds were eye candy  with a few 
Western Sandpipers in the mix and quite a few Pectorals  finally.
The treat of the day was a molted adult White-rumped and a Baird's feeding  
in the mix but I could not get them to get any closer together than 15 or 
20  feet apart. This still made for some good looks at their different styles.
I've added a few photos from the long weekend at: 
Good Birding  !!!
