Subject: [Va-bird] Great Falls NP Bird Walk 06/25/2017 (Fairfax County)

Following is the tally from today's weekly bird walk at Great Falls National Park, which identified 36 species.  Worthy of particular note was a nice sighting of a wood thrush as it fed.
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE TO MEETUP LOCATION IN CAPS:  The group still meets on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m., but effective Sunday, July 2, we will now congregate IN FRONT OF THE SNACK BAR/CONCESSION STAND of the Great Falls Park visitors' center (instead of in the parking lot) to begin the walk.  All birders are welcome!
