[va-richmond-general] Richmond Audubon Field Trip to Belmead, Powhatan County October 1

 This Saturday, October 1, Richmond Audubon Society will be holding a field 
trip to Belmead in Powhatan County.  This 2600 acre property is owned by the 
Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and we are fortunate to have access to this 
private property.  The forecast this weekend is for a cold front to move 
through Friday night, and we are hoping this will produce good conditions for a 
flight of migrant warblers and thrushes.  The current list for the property 
(available at 
http://ebird.org/ebird/va/GuideMe?step=saveChoices&getLocations=hotspots&parentState=US-VA&bMonth=01&bYear=1900&eMonth=12&eYear=2011&reportType=location&hotspots=L1035408&hotspots=L816700&hotspots=L1035409&continue.x=23&continue.y=11)
 stands at 112, and we could well add a species or two - we have some obvious 
misses such as Black-throated Blue Warbler and Swainson's and Gray-cheeked 
Thrush that could show up under these conditions.

Meet at the Powhatan Plaza Shopping Center (corner of Academy Road and Route 60 
in Powhatan) at 7:15 AM.  Bring sturdy shoes as it may be wet/muddy in places.  
There is a $5 fee for this trip, to be donated to the Sisters to support their 
conservation efforts.
