Dollyann and I went over to the Concord Marina area this afternoon, hoping to 
re-find the Lesser Black-backed Gull found found by the Clendenons the other 
day. No luck with that.

On the way home, via Pellissippi Parkway going to Oak Ridge, we drove across 
the Solway Bridge on the Anderson County/Knox County line. Dollyann saw a bird 
on the water and we decided to check it out. We turned east onto Highway 170 
and pulled into the first lakeside parking lot available. From there we set up 
the scope and found 3 WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS. One was directly under the bridge 
and the other two were floating around with a flock of Redheads. We found our 
first ever Anderson County White-winged Scoter last year under the same bridge 
on March 13.

Great birding,
Ron Hoff and Dollyann Myers
Clinton, TN
