DC Birding, weekend of April 11th/12th
Cool over night and then during the day warm weather and blue skies. Good number of birds moving, including Broad-winged Hawks over the house, and first of season Chimney Swift.
Early Saturday morning at Rock Creek Park produced Yellow-rumped Warbler, Palm Warbler, Purple Finch (4), Eastern Towhee, Field Sparrow (2) and Chipping Sparrow (5).
Sunday, at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, a pair of Eastern Bluebirds were carrying nest material to an old woodpecker hole.
And there was a scattering of migrants, including Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (5), Brown Thrasher (4), Palm Warbler (3) and Northern Parula (1).
Other good birds included Greater Yellowlegs and Belted Kingfisher. Over at Kenilworth Park, Caspian Tern (2) and a small flock of Chimney Swift (42) were notable.
