I birded the west end of the National Mall this morning and ran into a small flock of kinglets and chickadees near the FDR Memorial that contained a 1st-fall Black-and-white Warbler and a first-fall Nashville Warbler. Seemed noteworthy for November (the Black-and-white triggered the ebird filter, although the Nashville surprisingly didn't). An adult Bald Eagle soared over the MLK Memorial delighting a visiting school group. The Constitution Gardens Pond had a nice selection of waterfowl, including Gadwall, Ruddy Duck, American Wigeon, and a few dozen Shovelers. A Lesser Scaup was on the Reflecting Pool.
