Subject: [VA-bird] Banshee Reeks monthly walk results (Loudoun)
14 birders led by Jane Yocom and Dori Rhodes spent a few lovely hours
walking through Banshee Reeks this Saturday. Highlights of the walk
included good looks at Blue Grosbeak, Chestnut-sided warbler, Scarlet
Tanager, Swainson’s Thrush, Red-eyed Vireos, many Indigo Buntings and
Baltimore Orioles. Several good heard only or poorly seen birds included
Nashville Warbler, Yellow-breasted Chat, Yellow-throated Vireo,
Black-throated Green Warbler, and Blackpoll Warbler. A few of us heard
(only) what we IDed as an Alder Flycatcher - please check out the
recordings attached to the checklist and feel free to weigh in on this
rarity. Several other species have nice photos attached by participants.

The checklist with 62 species can be found at

The 2nd Saturday of the month Banshee Reeks walk is free and open to
anyone. It is sponsored by The Friends of Banshee Reeks ( ) and Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy ( ). Other programs and events can be found on
their websites.
