>> 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,
>> Bryan Henson
>> Sterling, VA
>>
>> *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!
