June 25th ten birders headed out on a muggy Saturday morning at New Quarter Park. Showers were in the area so we headed to the floating dock followed by the fire pit on our usual walk, not too far from the parking lot. With threating skies, we were able to get our two hours plus in and reported 34 species. One of the highlights was a pair of cardinals, with the female carrying nesting material, which was a new confirmation in the Williamsburg CE Block. The species spotted were:
Double Crested Cormorant Great Crested Flycatcher Barn Swallow
Great Blue Heron Carolina Chickadee Yellow-throated Vireo
Great Egret Tufted Titmouse Red-eyed Vireo
Turkey Vulture White-breasted Nuthatch Blue Jay
Osprey Carolina Wren American Crow
Laughing Gull Blue-gray Gnatcatcher Northern Cardinal
Ruby-throated Hummingbird American Robin Indigo Bunting
Belted Kingfisher Northern Mockingbird Brown-headed Cowbird
Downey Woodpecker Prairie Warbler House Finch
Pileated Woodpecker Chipping Sparrow American Goldfinch
Eastern Wood-Pewee Eastern Towhee
Acadian Flycatcher Summer Tanager

Twice-monthly bird walks at New Quarter Park continue throughout the summer. Some field trips will be held. Meetings, however, are on hold until the third week in September.

Did you know the Williamsburg Bird Club has a facebook page?

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.
