As an addendum to Marc Ribaudo's earlier posts on his sightings at Occoquan Bay NWR, I heard two king rails in the wetlands where Catamount creek passes under Charlie Road; two more rails calling midway down Easy Road; and I observed another two rails-one of which spent time in the middle of the road preening in full view-at the wetland area near the end of Easy Road. Six individual rails in all. And a note on yellow-billed cuckoos-I counted at least six after the rain stopped.
Didn't have quite the warbler catch Marc reported, but I was close w/12 species. Lots of black polls along the river, and I can add a couple of Canadas to Marc's list.
