Summer Blossoms

Wanted to get another post out as I’ll be hunting for a White-Headed Woodpecker over the extended weekend.

Bird Feature: American Bittern

On April 13, an American Bittern was reported at a pond in King Family Vineyard in Albemarle county. I arrived around 4:30 PM.

American Bittern is rare inland, but there are a few reliable spots where they can be found in spring, including Bles Park in Loudon County and Leopold’s Preserve in Prince William County. 206 more words
