Subject: [VA-bird] Riverbend Park Bird Walk 09/22/2018
Following is the tally from the September 22 bird walk at Riverbend Park, which identified approximately 24 species and included seven participants. Highlights included sightings of Common Yellowthroats and an American Redstart, a Swainson's Thrush, a Green Heron, and a number of Confusing Fall Warbler sp. (which moved too quickly against diffused light to get solid IDs). Today's walk focused on the Conn's Farm Meadow.

The next walk will meet at 8:00 a.m. on Friday September 28th (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.
