It was a bit nippy, but an otherwise perfect day for birding at the Monticello Park in Alexandria, and several birders were out in force, including Bill Young.
My friend and I saw several black-and-white warblers, a yellow-rumped warbler, a black-throated blue warbler, a kinglet, a wood thrush, a white-throated sparrow--they're mostly gone now--and a blue jay dive-bombing a red-tailed hawk on a tree. The hawk patiently humored the blue jay for a while before flying off. It was joined in flight by a second red-tailed hawk.
