Audubon Society of Northern Virginia Conducts Bird Walk at Mason Neck State Park

27 Aug 2017 2:52 PM | Thomas Blackburn (Administrator)

Dixie Sommers, who is a Friend of Mason Neck State Park and the Treasurer of the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia, led a bird walk along the Bayview Trail on Sunday morning, August 27.  We enjoyed a perfect day as we tallied 37 species.  Highlights included very good views of a Great Crested Flycatcher, a Prothonotary Warbler and a Red-eyed Vireo.  We also enjoyed numerous butterflies and some of the late summer flowers.
