Spring is definitely arriving at Huntley Meadows, as noted by the 14 birders 
who took part in the Monday Morning Walk today.  We tallied 44 species, with 
highlights being our first Tree Swallows of the season, Hooded Mergansers 
exploring nesting boxes, a Blue-winged Teal in eclipse plumage, and a 
Pied-billed Grebe.  Very exciting morning.

The Monday Morning birdwalk has been a weekly event at Huntley Meadows since 
1985.  It takes place every Monday, rain or shine, at 7 AM, is free of charge, 
requires no reservation, and is open to all.  Note that occasionally icy 
conditions on the trail may cause cancellation of the walk at the last moment.  
Birders meet in the parking lot at the Park's entrance at 3701 Lockheed Blvd, 
Alexandria, VA.  Those with questions should call the Park during normal 
business hours at (703) 768-2525.
