Rockfish Valley Trail 6/13/12

All photos are Marshall Faintich


It was a typical summer morning on the trail. No unusual birds, but I did log 29 species. Highlights included my first Blue Grosbeak on the trail this year, at least five Orchard Orioles, White-eye and Red-eyed Vireos, and our resident tail-less Turkey Vulture made an appearance.
