Last Saturday, our bird walk at the Freeland Road boardwalk of Canaan Valley NWR found four Fox Sparrows, our first of the year. Jacqueline Burns found Killdeer on her way out Freeland Road. I found Mallards, Wood Ducks, Northern Pintails, and Buffleheads at Canaan Valley State Park, and Buffleheads and Hooded Mergansers along with a Wood Duck at the Davis WTP.
I was in Upper Tract, Pendleton County, on Monday morning and saw a Sharp-shinned Hawk, Belted Kingfisher, and Swamp Sparrow along with many Song Sparrows.
