I arrived early for today's volunteer cleanup day at James River National Wildlife Refuge to do some birding in the swamp along Flowerdew Hundred Road on the southern end of the refuge.
There was at least one Red-headed Woodpecker that provided excellent looks on several occasions, along with Downy, Red-bellied, Flicker, and Pileated. There was also a Kingfisher hanging about, a few Wood Duck and Mallards, a number of Yellow-Rumped Warblers, a couple of Bluebirds and a Swamp Sparrow, among others. Complete list below.
