This morning (8/27) in the maintenance area of Rock Creek Park………….

After a slow start birding picked up substantially. Three FOS birds were seen—Red-headed Woodpecker, Magnolia Warbler and Yellow-rumped Warbler. Numerous Chimney Swifts were flying very low over the maintenance yard. Baltimore Orioles in bright plumage captured everyone’s attention. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds appeared to be everywhere in the yard.

Fellow birders saw 9 warbler species: Blue-wing, Yellowthroat, Redstart, Cape May, Parula, Magnolia, Chestnut-sided, Blackpoll, Yellow-rump
