Walt Childs and I started out at Lickinghole Creek this morning where we saw 27 avian species. Highlights were four warbler species: Common Yellowthroat (1), Cape May (2), Ovenbird (1), and Black-throated Green (4); and six raptor species: Osprey, Sharp-shinned Hawk, a small flock of Broad-winged Hawks, Red-shouldered Hawk, and Turkey/Black Vultures.

We birded a few other places in Crozet and added six more species to the day's list. We were surprised to see a Red-winged Blackbird at Mint Springs Park as we thought most of them had migrated south already. We saw another Sharp-shinned Hawk just off Jarman Gap Road.
