Hello, birders. This afternoon I butterflied at Riverbend Park near Great Falls. I birded the Meadow area and then walked down to the VC, then went downstream to the field just above the little falls. After that I retraced my steps. I did not see the Ring-necked Ducks reported previously by Jay Keller. I did see a GREAT EGRET and 3 FORSTER'S TERNS today near the Visitor Center. I don't believe either is terribly uncommon in the area, however I don't think I've ever seen either species at the park before. The egret was standing in vegetation just off the Md. shore when I first saw it. Later, it flew off downriver. Two terns were resting on a rock in the middle of the Potomac, a third was flying upriver in the same area. Families of songbirds were about - Kingbirds, Chickadees, Titmice, Buntings.
