As part of Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy's Celebrate Birds! group walks celebrating migration season, we led a group of 5 hardy birders into a rainy day looking for warblers. Between the rains and the muddy conditions, we had amazing looks at several great (often sneaky!) birds, including Bay-breasted Warblers, Ovenbirds, Canada Warblers, Yellow-billed Cuckoos, Acadian Flycatchers, Northern Waterthrush and TONS of Red-eyed Vireos. All told, we saw 57 species of birds, including 12 species of warblers. Not bad considering that the rain quieted all the birds except for Prothonatory Warbler at times.
