I birded Occoquan NWR in Prince William County this morning. Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Palm Warbler and Purple Martin were among the new arrivals that I found. A small flock of Bonaparte’s Gulls were high over head. There were 5 Brown Thrasher’s setting up territory. I saw a Red-bellied Woodpecker and a Tufted Titmouse with bands on their legs. The banding station has been busy! All in all a very please morning to be out birding.

There were four yellowlegs. One bird was larger than the other 3. I heard it call tu-tu-tu in flight. There are also two Green-windged Teal. > Lesser Yellowlegs 3 > Bonaparte's Gull 5 These birds were flying overheard. I could not see them with my naked eye. I only noticed them in my binoculars when I was looking at the Osprey and Turkey Vultures soaring overhead. They were mostly white gulls with medium gray mantle and back of wings; white heads and tails. They had white wing tips with black on the trailing edge of the wing tip. > Ring-billed Gull 1 > Herring Gull 1 > Caspian Tern 1 > Forster's Tern 1 > Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon) 1 > Mourning Dove 4 > Barred Owl 2 > Belted Kingfisher 1 > Red-bellied Woodpecker 2 > Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 1 > Downy Woodpecker (Eastern) 3 > Northern Flicker (Yellow-shafted) 25 > Eastern Phoebe 5 > Blue Jay 12 > American Crow 5 > Fish Crow 15 > Purple Martin 1 > Tree Swallow 12 > Carolina Chickadee 8 > Tufted Titmouse 6 This bird is banded.
