Have I said in my recent postings that it has been raining a lot here in Virginia ? :-)
Most of the birds I saw on the trail were common summer or year round residents.
Two of many juvenile Eastern Bluebirds
But there were three visitors to the trail. I saw a Least Flycatcher along the downstream trail.
Along the Glenthorne loop trail south of the bog area, I stopped to photograph a flycatcher at the top of the tallest dead branch in a tree. I considered Olive-sided Flycatcher, as they often visit for a day or two during migration in May, they like perching at the highest possible point, and I had seen this species on that same tree in previous years. But the lighting was so poor that I couldn't tell for sure until I got home and started processing the photos. Its dark vest, short tail, and spotted undertail coverts confirmed my guess.
I saw another visitor in the same section of the Glenthorne Loop trail. I couldn't tell for sure what it was because of the poor lighting, but processing the only photo I got of it shows a black bird, with pale eyes, and a relatively short tail. This suggests either a Rusty or Brewer's Blackbird, and its bill thickness points to Brewer's, but I am not sure.
I ended my hike with 26 avian species at 10:15 when it started raining and I was about a mile from my car.
