[Bristol-Birds] Breaks Park CBC

Area Birders,
VA Birders,
Eleven birders turned out to participate in the Breaks Interstate Park CBC on

being logged. The highlights were American Kestrel (not common), Red-breasted 
Nuthatch, Horned Lark, American Coot (not common in the area), Hermit Thrush, 
Brown Thrasher (unusual in winter), Pine Siskin, Fox Sparrow, Purple Finch, 
Ruffed Grouse (harder to find now), Pileated Woodpecker (high number of 14) and 
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
For those interested the complete list follows.
