A large group spent a full morning into early afternoon birding the 3 mile
loop from the main VF entrance south to the river, west and north through
the woods, and back east along the towpath trail. The group collectively
tallied over 60 species. Highlights included several virginia rails calling
and making brief forays into the open for most to see; least bittern seen
and heard near the main preserve road; 11 species of wood warblers
including blackburnian, bay-breasted, magnolia, and chestnut-sided; and
good numbers of several summer breeders including eastern kingbird,
yellow-throated vireo, rose-breasted grosbeak, and baltimore oriole.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for a successful outing today.
