Yesterday, 3 birders participating in the Central Loudoun CBC birded the C&O Canal from Edward's Ferry to White's Ferry. It was a lovely walk with lots of birds. We found 47 species in the CBC sector.
Highlights of the walk included many (21!) Red-headed Woodpeckers, a brief visit by a Merlin, a Barred Owl, many Kinglets (10 ruby and 14 golden-crowned), several Brown Creepers and an incredible number of White-throated Sparrows (327).
We're always looking for more volunteers and sector leaders to participate in the Central Loudoun CBC. Next year's count will be on Monday, December 28, 2020. If you are interested in participating, please contact myself or Joe Coleman ( <jcoleman...> ) or contact us through the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy website (loudounwildlife.org).
