Subject: [VA-bird] Huntley Meadows Monday Morning birdwalk
A beautiful birding morning greeted at least 40 birders who tallied 77species on today's  Huntley Meadows Monday Morning birdwalk.   We counted 11 Warbler speech; three vivid Scarlet Tanagers; a rather complete inventory of thrushes; and freshly molted Tree Sparrows  presenting vivid pictures and exploring nest boxes -  a truly wonderful birding day.
