Greetings All

Yesterday David Pennebaker and I tried for a good part of yesterday morning trying to find the Mississippi Kites at Runt’s farm without any luck.

After we split up I came home to cut grass while David went on to Long Island in Campell Co and reported 4 singing Dickcissels. He called me to let me know and so today I got up early and making my way there stopping to try to find a Chuck Will Widow in both Pittsylvania and Campell Counties but had no luck on them but did get an EWPW at 3 stops.

At Long Island at 0530 Hrs I heard a Dickcissel calling as I got out of my car. While waiting for more light I saw a Bald Eagle and then tried for the Dickcissels to get a look at them and maybe even a picture. I found two along side of the road one in a 30ft dead tree and the forth in the grass to the left of the dead tree.

As so go good looks at a pair of Grasshopper Sparrows.

Heard a Bobwhite from Long Island Rd and two at Long Island Park and a fourth Epsons Rd.

Also had Common Raven from 3 locations. 2 of them was just heard while one was well seen before it crocked out.

Below is the complete list for the day and only wished that I hadn’t gotten hungry and it was getting muggy. Heat was bad.

Good Birding Always.
