Greetings Birders,

This morning I spent a few hours in the Mississippi bottoms of Jackson

In the flooded fields around Jacob the highlights were: 7 American
Avocets, 11 Caspian and 1 Black Tern, and 120+ Bank Swallows. South of
Grand Tower, I had no luck with the Fulvous Whistling-Duck, but it is
a huge area, much of which is still inaccessible by car. At the Lower
Chute, I was happy to see an Anhinga flying overhead from Illinois to
Missouri. In all, I tallied 12 species of shorebirds this morning.

eBird checklists with a couple of photos are at:

Good birding,
Henry Detwiler
Yuma, AZ & Carbondale, IL
