Subject: [Va-bird] Fw: eBird Report - Occoquan Bay NWR, Feb 26, 2017
Birding at Occoquan Bay NWR was a pure delight this morning. I tallied 62
species. Highlights were a great horned owl on a nest (can be seen from the
parking lot; a better look with some hiking), the Lincoln's sparrow at the
end of Easy Road, a tree sparrow right next to the parking lot at the start
of Fox Rd., huge numbers of lesser scaup, and an otter fishing in Marumsco
Bay, seen from Deep Hole Point Rd. The list is below.
