Subject: [VA-bird] Riverbend Park Bird Walk 09/14/2018
Following is the tally from the September 14 bird walk at Riverbend Park, which identified 23 species and included one participant. Highlights include sightings of a Common Yellowthroat and a female American Redstart, several Wood Thrush, and a couple of Veerys. 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 Saturday, September 22nd (rain or shine), in the parking lot at the Riverbend Park Nature Center (not the 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.
