Subject: Re: [VA-bird] Great Falls Sunday Bird walk - A banner day.
Following is the count from Sunday's weekly bird walk at Great Falls National Park, which identified 71 species and included 16 participants. It was an outstanding morning for birds at Great Falls. Warblers were well represented along with other crowd favorites like the Scarlet tanager, Balitmore and Orchard orioles. We didn't want to go home. The walk meets at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, rain or shine, in front of the snack bar/concession stand of the Great Falls National Park Visitors' center; it does not take place, though, during electrical storms, heavy snows, or when the trails are icy. All those with an interest in the natural world, beginning and experience birds, or those interested in nice walk in a beautiful setting please join us.
