Rock Creek Park - first fall visit

August 15, 2015

Fall migration has been starting slowly and with predominantly south/south westerly winds for the next few days not many migrants are expected to be passing through DC. Nonetheless, early mornings in the Maintenance Yard will often defy the conditions. Today's offerings included a handful of Eastern Wood-pewee, Blue-winged Warbler, Parula Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Scarlet Tanager and a very obliging Barred Owl - more often heard in the distance, this individual offered wonderful views.
