Subject: [Va-bird] Huntley Meadows Monday Morning Birdwalk
Once again, a group of about 30 birders took part in today's Huntley Meadows Monday Morning Birdwalk.   We identified some 54 species in about a two hour period.  Some of our highlights included our FOS sightings of Blue-grey Gnatcatchers; about 200 Rusty Blackbirds; and a large group of Yellow-rumped Warblers.
