Monday Morning Bird Walk, Huntley Meadows Park
It was a beautiful morning for the weekly walk. Warmer than it has been, and all the forest birds were in full song. In addition to the birds pictured below, I saw cardinals, blue jays, redwinged blackbirds (of course), Canada geese, greater yellowlegs, pectoral sandpipers (well seen through the scope, but too far away for a definitive picture--I need a bigger lens!), wood ducks, mallards, yellow rumped warblers, northern flicker, eastern phoebe, rusty blackbird, bluebird. The group also saw American Kestrel and laughing gulls, but I didn't see them well enough to make my own ID.
