6 Apr 2010

Everyday there seems to be more and more birds showing up in NOVA either to stay for the summer or to pass through on the way up north. A goose has decided to make a nest just off of the walking trail around the lake. I hope that it makes it all the way until the eggs hatch. I am going to keep an eye on this and will put it in my blog.

I saw and got a picture of what I think is a Palm Warbler. It is a transit bird. It was hopping around on the ground and then flew up in a nearby tree.

I also saw a male Eastern Towhee on the ground kicking up dead leaves looking for insects. It has the red eye of the towhee that travels to northern states.
