Crozet, VA 10/2/13

All photos are Marshall Faintich

Walt Childs and I drove over to Crozet to do some birding on the trail along Lickinghole Creek and Reservoir. We ended up with 30 species, including 4 warbler species: Cape May, Magnolia, American Redstart, and probable Yellow-throated.

There was a small flock of Cape May Warblers along the creek, including bright yellow males, dull yellow and white females, and a probable very dull first fall female. We spotted another warbler that is probably a Yellow-throated, but did not get a clear view or good photos, so a Blackburnian or other warbler species is also a possibility.
