Cold temperatures and bright, sunny skies made for a good day for birding in Crozet. I started out at a new place for me - the trails along the creek in Old Trails where there is a community garden and a soccer field. There were lots of birds there - mostly sparrows, and I ended up with 16 species at this site.
Todays' Old Trail list:
Next stop was Lickinghole Creek and reservoir. Although it wasn't as "birdy" as Old Trail, I did see 21 species there and added 12 new species to today's list.
Juvenile White-crowned Sparrow
Late season Brown Thrasher
New species for today at Lickinghole Creek:
Stops at Beaver Creek Reservoir, Mint Springs Park, and King Family Vineyards didn't add many birds, and only two more species for the day: Dark-eyed Junco and Red-bellied Woodpecker.
