I don't have time to post the whole list but here are the highlights from a trip to King George and Westmoreland COunties on Sunday October 8. 4 STILT Sandpipers (my first in the NNK) were with 1 PECTORAL Sandpiper and 9 Lesser and 3 Greater Yellowlegs at the private Trader Farm in Leedstown (Westmoreland Co) along with my second CATTLE Egret for the NNK. The clay-clored sparrow that had been at this location two weeks ago was gone, but the first 2 WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS of the season were in the same poke bush along with 15 field sparrows. In the nearby marshy pond were 39 GREEN-WINGED TEAL and 3 SHOVELER. On my property along Peedee Creek in Leedstown was a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a LINCOLN'S SPARROW and my first TENNESSEE WARBLER for the NNK. Other warblers were black-and-white, magnolia, nashville, palm, pine, redstart, black-throated green, and yellowthroat. I saw no ducks in the Potomac at Muse Rd or Washington's Birthplace. At Mothershead (Rappahannock River Valley NWR) in Leedstown there were about 20 indigo buntings as well as many swamp and field sparrows. At King George ponds there were 9 pied-billed grebes, 24 female Ring-necked Ducks, 14 ruddy ducks, and 3 pintails. Canada Geese numbered around 800 or so. I saw more kestrels than usual: total for the day was about ten. ALl the best Fred Frederick D.
