Two stalwart birders joined me yesterday for a cool, breezy bird walk here at Mason Neck State Park. We couldn't linger as much as desired due to a late start, so our total sightings were fewer than they might have been. Nonetheless we enjoyed a couple roving groups of warblers along the Bay View Trail. Most numerous were the BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLERS; we also had RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, PALM WARBLER, and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER. Despite my prediction that BALD EAGLES often stay close to their roost on cloudy, drizzly days, we still saw two adults and one sub-adult. A species list follows.
Join us next Saturday for the weekly bird walk at Mason Neck State Park. We meet at the Visitor Center for a 9am start, take the Bay View Trail, and conclude in the picnic area at 11am. No reservations are required. Please address any questions to me at the contact address below. Also please note that the October 21 walk may be canceled due to the Harvest Festival scheduled in the park for that day; stay tuned for confirmation.
