Hello all, The NWS radar from Sterling was quite active last night, as was the BirdCast migration map, which forecasted the best migration through the Mid-Atlantic so far this fall. The forecast proved true this morning at Algonkian Regional Park in Loudoun County. We birded the trail from the boat ramp to Sugarland Run, as well as the area around the waterpark. Both areas had several flocks yielding 13 warbler species:
Ovenbird (1) Black-and-white (6) Tennessee (2) Co. Yellowthroat (6) Redstart (9) Magnolia (2) No. Parula (1) Bay-breasted (1) Chestnut-sided (1) Black-throated Blue (2) Pine (1) Black-throated Green (1) and my FOS Yellow-rumped, a bit early.
Other sightings included my FOS Ruby-crowned Kinglet, many Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, many Red-eyed Vireos, several House Wrens, Least Flycatchers, an Osprey, and two Bald Eagles. Thanks goes to Bryan Henson and Allison G for their help in spotting/IDing some of the birds!
