Subject: [VA-bird] Birds at Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship, northwestern Lo Co
Seventeen people enjoyed a beautiful morning at the Blue Ridge Center for
Environmental Stewardship in northwestern Loudoun County on today's regular
(every 4th Saturday except December) bird walk. The temperature, ranging
from the upper 50's at the beginning of the walk rose to about 80 when we
were tallying at the Education Center. Several mixed flocks of migrants were
the highlights of the three mile walk which forded Piney Run in two
different locations. Jane Yocom and Donna Quinn led the walk with a lot of
assistance from the several good birders on the walk who helped find and
identify 40 species of birds including White-eyed Vireos, a Yellow-throated
Vireo, three different groups of Cedar Waxwings eating grape berries,
Black-and-white Warblers, Nashville Warbler, Magnolia Warblers, Pine
Warbler, Scarlet Tanager, a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and more. The complete
list can be seen at:

The Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy schedules three regular bird walks most
months, one at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship on the
4th Saturday of the month, one at the Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve on the
second Saturday of the month, and one at Bles Park on the third Sunday of
the month. Everyone is welcome at these walks.
