An hour at Bear Creek Lake SP in Cumberland County yielded some more  
first-of-the year sightings/hearings for me.  HOODED WARBLER and SCARLET  
both singing, and a SPOTTED SANDPIPER was feeding at the mud flat that  has 
formed where the lake has been drawn down for dam work.  There was a  pair of 
DUCKS in a tree.
Interestingly I also saw a pair of WOOD DUCKS in a tree in my  yard in 
Powhatan this morning, just as I was leaving for Bear  Creek.
