On this lovely morning, 21 birders enjoyed a walk at Long Branch Nature
Center. We encountered a Scarlet Tanager, Great Crested Flycatchers, and
several warblers, including a beautiful Cape May and singing Northern
Parulas. There was a Solitary Sandpiper at the pond on the W&OD Trail, where
sparrows and an Orchard Oriole were also seen. A male Ruby-throated
Hummingbird and a Wood Thrush were seen near the visitor center, FOS for
most of us.



This walk was sponsored by the Northern Virginia Bird Club. See the Siskin
newsletter at http://nvabc.org/updated-field-trips/ for upcoming walks.
