Baird's Sandpiper - Rankin Bottoms (upper Douglas Lake), Cocke County, TN - 8/29-30/11

Hi All,

A Baird's Sandpiper was found during efforts to relocate a recently found RUFF at Rankin Bottoms on upper Douglas Lake in Cocke County in eastern Tennessee on both 8/29 and 8/30.

The RUFF was seen on both days as well, plus a large number of species of more common shorebirds (see the 8/28 RUFF NGR post for more information concerning the RUFF).

Good Near Georgia Birding!
