Next bird walk Saturday, May 28 at 7 a.m. at New Quarter Park

The Williamsburg Bird Club and New Quarter Park co-sponsor bird walks at New Quarter Park, 1000 Lakeshead Dr., Williamsburg, twice a month — the second and fourth Saturdays. The second Saturdays we meet at 8 a.m; the fourth Saturdays we meet at 7 a.m. Meet in the parking lot near the park office. Participants can stay as long as they’d like. Generally, the leader will walk about two hours or so, but participants can peel off as they like. Walks are free and open to the public. You need not be a member to join us. Just show up!

Bird Walk at New Quarter Park, May 14

We had a great group come out to enjoy the long-awaited warm and dry weather on our regular walk in New Quarter Park May 14. Highlights were the plethora of Blackpoll Warblers plus a Red-eyed Vireo on its nest. Several folks were able to snap photos of the vireo, this one from Nancy Barnhart.

The Birds of Virginia’s Colonial Historic Triangle

Cover of Bill Williams' book, Birds of Virginia's Historic Colonial Triangle

The Bird Club has published “The Birds of Virginia’s Colonial Historic Triangle.” Editor Bill Williams compiled the data from local birders' records since the 1960's and 1970's. The cover, shown here, sports a stunning photo of our mascot bird, a Red-headed Woodpecker taken by Club member Mike Powell at Greensprings Trail. The book contains over 30 color photos by local nature photographers.

You can obtain one of “Bill’s Books” at just about any Bird Club event. They are also available at Morrison’s Flowers and Gifts at Colony Square Shopping Center on Jamestown Road and at Wild Birds Unlimited at Monticello Marketplace.
