Birders, Yesterday afternoon, Andy Martin, Carole Miller and I visited Belvoir Pond in Fauquier County. We found approximately 500 Ring-necked Ducks, 2 American Coots, and 3 Bufflehead. Carole had stopped by in the AM and had seen 2 Northern Shoveler as well.
In addition, we were pretty sure that we had a good-sized flock of Rusty Blackbirds mixed in with a big flock of Red-winged Blackbirds in the fields next to Wakefield School just outside of The Plains on the Rt. 66 side.
I had about 200 Common Grackles in my back yard this morning!
