Greetings, Len DiIoia, Ryan Mays, and Alan & Clyde Kessler birdwatched Saturday morning (8 January 2005) in Pulaski County. There were intermittent rain showers through the morning, but there were also four rainbows. On a sadder note, we found a roadkill Great Horned Owl, and a roadkill mink. The Brown-headed Nuthatches noted below were part of a mixed flock that included about seven of the Red-breasted Nuthatches and some chickadees and titmice. The BHN population in Pulaski County is a disjunct population and is the farthest west population in Virginia. A nest with young was found in spring 2001, and BHNs have been present since 1994 when they were first encountered in Dublin, VA.
