Rockfish Valley Trail 9/24/12

All photos are Marshall Faintich


I met up with Walt Childs and the Sedgwicks at 8:30 a.m. at the Glenthorne Loop parking area this morning, and we all birded together. The trail continues to provide good birding this fall, as our group list contained 50 species, including 9 warbler species: Cape May, Black-throated Green, Ovenbird, Tennessee, Magnolia, Palm, Chestnut-sided, Blackpoll, and Common Yellowthroat. The number of warbler species seen on the trail this month is now 21. Other morning highlights included Green and Great Blue Herons, Yellow-bellied and Least Flycatchers, Swainson's Thrush, and Red-headed Woodpecker.
