Subject: [VA-bird] Riverbend Park Bird Walk 08/24/2018
Following is the tally from the August 24 bird walk at Riverbend Park, which identified approximately 21 species and included five participants. In marked contrast with just a few days ago (August 18), no Indigo Buntings were sighted or heard.  Eastern Wood-Pewees, however, made themselves quite visible on snags at the forest edge, and woodpeckers were in abundance. Today's walk focused on the Conn's Farm Meadow, with a brief round-trip hike to and from the park Visitors' Center.
The next walk will meet at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, September 14th (rain or shine), in the parking lot at the Riverbend Park Visitors' Center; please contact Riverbend Park on 703-759-9018 to register. Participants should be prepared to walk about 2 miles in comfortable, closed-toed shoes. There likely will be gentle uphill and downhill stretches on slightly uneven terrain. All those with an interest in the natural world - beginning or experienced birders - please join us.
