Ridgeview Park (Waynesboro, VA) 3/26/12

All photos are Marshall Faintich


I had an errand to run in Waynesboro, VA this morning, so I decided to go to Ridgeview Park to see what was there. I had only been there a couple of times before when lots of people were around, so a Monday morning would be less crowded. My target bird was a Yellow-throated Warbler - they have been seen there by other birders in previous years, and few birds of this species have been reported elsewhere in Virginia during the past few days. I arrived at 9:00 and stayed until 10:15. Although I didn't see any warblers there, I did log 18 species. I was also impressed with the number of birds that were there, and how green the vegetation was so early in the spring.
