Hi All,

The famous Jeff Wilson of Bartlett, Tennessee had an amazing birding day on the 7th. On Kentucky Lake from Paris Landing to Pace Point in Henry and Benton counties in northwestern Tennessee, Jeff had the following fantastic birds in one day:

Pacific Loon
YELLOW-BILLED LOON (his 5th for this location!)
Golden Eagle
Pomarine Jaeger (Inland, about 440 miles from the Gulf of Mexico)
Long-eared Owl

Red-throated Loons were also seen making for a four loon day in TN!

Congratulations to Jeff!
