Although I have seen 30+ avian species in the past week, the number of birds around these parts has been low.

Lake Shenandoah, VA 3/11/14

I had errands to do in Harrisonburg, and stopped off at Lake Shenandoah because one of the Red-necked Grebes there was reported to be in breeding plumage. When I got there, I saw one Pied-billed and two Red-necked Grebes along with a small flock of Red-breasted Mergansers, but they were far from the shore, and the Red-necked Grebes were sleeping.
