Subject: [Va-bird] Great Falls NP Bird Walk 09/17/2017 (Fairfax County)

Following is the tally from Sunday's weekly bird walk at Great Falls National Park, which included 12 participants and identified approximately 33 species.  
One of the highlights of the walk involved a micro-fallout of warblers at about eye level in the understory adjacent to the main falls overlook.  Many, but not all, of the warblers identified below were among that fallout.
The walk meets on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. in front of the snack bar/concession stand of the Great Falls Park visitors' center.  All birders are welcome!
