Subject: [Va-bird] Great Falls NP Bird Walk 11/05/2017 (Fairfax County)
Following is the count from Sunday's weekly bird walk at Great Falls National Park, which identified approximately 31 species and included 9 participants.  Although the morning's fog and the mist held steady throughout much of the walk, the birds were nonetheless quite active, attracted by the remaining grapes and poison ivy berries up in the trees.  

The walk meets at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, rain or shine, in front of the snack bar/concession stand of the Great Falls Park visitors' center; it does not take place, though, during electrical storms, strong winds, heavy snows, or when the trails are icy.  All birders are welcome!
