Subject: [Va-bird] Huntley Meadows Monday Morning Birdwalk
Although today wasn't the holiday, we drew 35 birders to the Huntley Meadows Monday Morning Birdwalk.  It makes one wonder who was minding the store.  We tallied 50 species with the same Yellow-crowned Night Heron we had last week still hanging around.  A lone Orchard Oriole made a couple of our gang happy, and the full compliment of summer Woodpeckers filled out the list.
