So far, I have shown you pictures of the scenery, the wildflowers, and the people you might see at the New River Birding and Nature Festival. This week, I give you a list. My Trip List of the birds that I saw when I was there in 2007. Of course, there are no photos of these birds, but I hope to come back with plenty of pics this year!
Great Blue Heron
Broad-winged Hawk (Life Bird, with BT3)
Spotted Sandpiper (Life Bird)
Black-billed Cuckoo (Life Bird)
Great Crested Flycatcher
Northern Rough-winged Swallow
Black-throated Green Warbler
Prairie Warbler (Life Bird)
Cerulean Warbler (Life Bird)
Worm-eating Warbler (Life Bird)
Swainson's Warbler (Life Bird, with Zick)
Canada Warbler (Life Bird)
Total for the week: 90 species, including 19 warblers, and 8 Life Birds. I am especially proud of the Black-billed Cuckoo, which I identified by its call while birding on my own. There were 8 species I saw nesting, including both Blue-headed Vireo and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher on Opossum Creek property.
Here's hoping to break 100 when I Flock to West Virginia next week!
