Rockfish Valley Trail 7/31/14

All photos are Marshall Faintich

Walt Childs and I spent a couple of hours on the trail this morning. We saw 21 species that included 7 species that I did not see on the trail the day before: Blue Grosbeak, Chimney Swift, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Barn Swallow, Carolina Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, and Eastern Meadowlark.

I thought that this Cicada was a Hummingbird until it landed.
