Stoney Creek (Wintergreen) 10/14/14

All photos are Marshall Faintich

After this morning's rain-shortened hike on the Rockfish Valley Trail, I decided to take a short hike from my house down to the Allen Creek Nature Preserve and back when there was an afternoon break in the precipitation. I saw 15 avian species, including my first-of-season Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and a Double-crested Cormorant standing on the Lake Monocan dock.
