Another slow day for birding but otherwise a beautiful Indian summer day to be outdoors. Hope you were able to enjoy it too. Perhaps the front moving in tonight will bring some needed rain and birds. I'll have to go out this evening to get four more birds to meet my RDA. Location: Scott's Gap Observation date: 11/6/08 Notes: Sunny, 42 climbing to 76F, gusty winds in the afternoon. Slow day for birding what should otherwise be productive habitat. Scott's Gap is the western-most section of Jefferson Memorial Forest. Habitat composed of tall grass meadow approximately one-half mile in circumference is bordered by relatively dense and mature forest with a 3.2 mile trail. The only apparent deficit is the lack of reliable water, though there is a dry pond and a few dry emphermeral streams in the forest. Number of species: 16 Turkey Vulture 1 Red-tailed Hawk 2 Mourning Dove 2 Red-bellied Woodpecker 1 Downy Woodpecker 1 Blue Jay 1 American Crow 4 Tufted Titmouse 2 Carolina Wren 1 Golden-crowned Kinglet 2 American Robin 1 Only one. Song Sparrow 9 Couldn't get any to turn into any of the other sparrow species. White-throated Sparrow 7 Dark-eyed Junco 8 Northern Cardinal 4 American Goldfinch 13 This report was generated automatically by eBird v2(http://ebird.org) Rod Botkins Jefferson Co.
