greater yellowlegs, lesser yellowlegs, solitary sandpiper, spotted 
sandpiper, semipalmated sandpiper, 3 least sandpipers, and pectoral 
sandpiper, 4 Forsters and 2 black terns seen from the Guntersville boat 
ramp, and an adult and imm scissor-tailed flycatchers across from Big 
Daddys just south of the TN-AL state line on US Hwy 72.
