Linda & I visited Three Lakes Nature Center (in Henrico Co) on Saturday - the one that was featured in the Saturday TD - and saw DC Cormorants (DCCO) and Canada Geese (CAGO) there. There was one CAGO nesting on an island. Also, that's a good place to see EABL and CHSP - on an asphalt path from one of the lakes to the parking lot. Other than that there were some TUTI and a few RBWP and DOWP.
