Thirteen birders turned out for the Northern Virginia Bird Club mid-week trip to Occoquan Bay NWR in Woodbridge. It was an excellent morning with 71 species tallied. Lots of activity and highlights were many. These include: a large flock of red-breasted mergansers that landed off Deephole Pt. Road giving everyone great looks; a common loon, pied-billed grebe, and 21 horned grebes around Deephole Point; Bonaparte's gull; great egret; blue-winged teal; purple martin; greater yellowlegs; vesper and savannah sparrows; 8 palm warblers, giving great views; a ruby-crowned kinglet near the banding station sporting a shiny new band; rusty blackbird; near constant osprey activity; and two occupied eagle nests. The complete list is presented below.
