Subject: [VA-bird] Great Falls NP Bird Walk 09/09/2018 (Fairfax County)
Following is the count from Sunday's weekly bird walk at Great Falls National Park, which identified 17 species and included 4 participants. The rain was so steady (and loud) that the group dispensed with the up-river portion of the walk in favor of hot coffee. Nevertheless, there was one special highlight - a Yellow-throated Vireo, on an otherwise dreary day.
This walk meets at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, rain or shine, in front of the snack bar/concession stand of the Great Falls National Park Visitors' center; it does not take place, though, during electrical storms, heavy snows, or when the trails are icy. All those with an interest in the natural world - beginning and experienced birders alike - please join us.
