It was quite a sight with 17 males sitting in a single large bush. Further along Harrison were several singing meadowlarks and a single grasshopper sparrow.

> The Northern Virginia Bird Club visited the Trillium Trail of Thompson WMA in Fauquier Co this morning, and unlike recent years, did not suffer fog, cold, or rain. We enjoyed a great cerulean warbler show, with good looks at numerous birds. We also enjoyed an extremely cooperative Kentucky warbler that was singing from a bare branch over the trail, not far from the parking lot. Several hooded warblers tantalized us, but only one of our party could get eyes on one. We lucked into a pair of blue-headed vireos that appeared to be bringing food to a nest. We also saw a first year male rose-breasted grosbeak trying to build a nest, without much apparent success. Other notables were a couple of Swainson's thrushes, hermit thrush, worm-eating warbler, red-headed woodpecker, Acadian flycatcher, several yellow-throated vireos, and black-throated blue warbler. We tallied 49 species in all.

> Our team of three spent the afternoon of Friday May 5th through this
> afternoon (hoping to void incoming rain) participating in the Loudoun
> Wildlife Conservancy birdathon. While the goal is to raise money for
> Loudoun Wildlife, an active conservancy organization that we strongly
> support (you can donate at
> https://loudounwildlife.org/2017/03/birdathon-donation-form/ if so moved),
> a lot of birding is involved.
>
> We ended up with a little over 100 species for the 24 hour period. Only
> birds seen from within Loudoun county were counted.
>
> *Highlights included:*
> Bay-breasted Warbler at Algonkian Park
> A lone Rusty Blackbird was seen/heard at Algonkian Park
> A flock of Bobolinks heard and spotted at Bles Park
> Beautiful Cape May Warblers at Morven Park
> FOS Yellow-billed Cuckoo at Algonkian Park
> Yellow Warblers (several locations)
> Orioles, vireos and grasshopper sparrows were back in force and singing
> strongly at multiple locations
>
>
> Waterfowl were scare and shorebirds were limited (high water levels?) to
> Solitary and Spotted Sandpipers.
> We had several misses: Great Horned Owl, Broad-winged Hawk, grosbeaks and
> many missed warblers (too many to list!).
>
> We wrapped up a little before the rain started and headed to a well timed
> lunch at a local Mexican restaurant.
>
> All the (23!) checklists are in eBird.

> Happy Cinco de Mayo,

> *Non-avian sightings:*
> Butterflies: Black Swallowtail, Pearl Crescent, American Lady, Tiger
> Swallowtail, sulphurs
> Common Green Darner, Fragile Forktail, probable Carolina Saddlebags
> Eastern Painted Turtle baby - maybe about an 1 to 1.5 inches long - very
> cute!

> We have had them now for 8 straight days - this am there were 2 Males and 3 Females on feeders at same time. This is the longest stretch of such activity that we can remember; usually we see them at the feeders for 3-4 days in a row. Not this year.
