Heard a chuck-wills widow this morning briefly around 5:30 AM. This is 
the first time I have heard one in 8 years on my property, which is a 
wooded lot  in Goochland on the Louisa county line. Bear Island has been 
doing a lot of clear cutting in the vicinity in the last year, so the 
birds are really moving - I am getting things I never used to hear or 
see before. Ovenbirds are more  common here than formerly, but the wood 
thrush seems to have taken it on the chin; usually I have had at least 3 
nesting pairs, and this year only 1 singing male.  I have heard 2 
whippoorwills singing almost nightly since the middle of May. 
Unfortunately cowbirds are now showing up on my feeders, also a first.
