On Saturday, Nov 5, six members of the Buchanan County Bird Club joined seven 
members of the Bibbee Nature Club of Bluefield WV to spend the day birding the 
Bluestone Dam and New River, Sandstone Falls area. The morning was cool, but 
the day became a warm, comfortable and enjoyable one to be out birding with 
friends. An early adult Bald Eagle flying low overhead was a sign that the day 
was going to be a good one, and it was. Forty-six species were counted for the 
day. The group found several species of waterfowl including 4 Tundra Swans on 
Mountain Valley Lake. The day's list follows these two photos. (If anyone knows 
of any species left off the list contact me)
