Fall birds at Bell's Lane

There was an e-mail alert about a rare Eared grebe at the Bell's Lane Bell's Lane yesterday, but it was already gone by the time I got there this afternoon. I did see two birds for the first time this season, however.

  • Ruddy ducks (2 M - FOS)
  • Pied-bill grebe (FOS)
  • Great blue heron
  • Chimney swifts
  • Tree swallows
  • Wood duck (M)
  • Phoebe

On Monday I took a drive along Sanger's Lane a couple miles east of town, and saw:

  • Bluebirds
  • Brown thrasher
  • Red-bellied woodpecker
  • Flickers (2)
  • Cedar waxwings (10+)
  • Field sparrow
  • Phoebes (2)
  • Killdeer
  • Common yellowthroat (F)

On Sunday my niece Cathy and I did a short walk along the Occoquan Reservoir south of the charming village of Clifton, and had some pleasant surprises:

  • Black-throated green warbler
  • Great egret
  • Great blue heron
  • Common yellowthroat (JM)
  • Pine warbler

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


Explanation

The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
