Dear Birders...
Between rain drops today Steve and I made our way first to the Shell Station on 
Riverside Dr...the "overlook" of the under construction Clarksville Marina.  We 
are happy to report that the White-winged Scoter is still present.  He was 
snoozing today...floating freely in the middle of the water there.  Also 
present were 5 Ring-billed Gulls, 5 Lesser Scaup, 1 Coot, 1 female Redhead and 
39 Canada Geese.  We were pleased to see so many birds there since the 
bulldozers were in full mode and they were dredging the bay off to the right.
From there we ran by Dunbar Cave State Park arriving with a flock of honking 
Canadas overhead.  The 9 Redheads are still there as are the 2 Canvasbacks, 1 
Ring-neck Duck, 1 coot, 1 Ruddy Duck.  They all seem to hang together about 
mid-lake.  Present also were about 15 Mallards and 100+ Canada Geese.  The 
Ross's Goose, who had come back and was there yesterday was NOT present today.  
On a personal note the Fox Sparrow continues to hang out in our yard...he likes 
perching in our Viburnums.

As always,
Happy birding!
Steve and Cyndi Routledge
