Earlier today during the joint National Park Service/Baltimore Bird Club walk at Hampton National Historic Site seven birders tallied 462 individual birds belonging to 47 species. The day started with a flurry of activity behind the slave quarters and farm house - Robins, Grackles, Blue Jays, Starlings, and Red-winged Blackbirds swirled around us making it difficult to find other species. In the midst of the madness we found the a Yellow Palm Warbler, a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, and two male Purple Finch. Other highlights included: a female Merlin, a Brown Thrasher, and a high-flying Osprey. In addition, we managed to find White-throated, Song, and Chipping Sparrows.
