My best bird this morning at Kent Gardens Park in McLean (Fairfax County) was a singing male hooded warbler. Other than that, it was pretty slow with respect to migrants.
I also had another close encounter with the beaver. I thought we were kindred spirits sharing a tender moment at dawn-until it loudly slapped the water with its tail and dove. That really startled me. I learned my lesson. Next time I'll view from a distance. I found a good spot where I can see its usual hangout without disturbing it.
