The group went to Castlewood today.  We observed a good collection of soaring birds despite the cloudy conditions early.  There were at least a couple of Black Vultures among the many Turkey Vultures, a few Broad-winged Hawks, and the local Red-shouldered, Red-tailed, and Cooper's Hawks along the ridge.  The river produced a fly-by Osprey for a few and a perched adult Bald Eagle.

A Tennessee Warbler was singing in the top of small bush near the creek. There was a Green Heron along the creek, an Eastern Kingbird was observed near the large picnic pavilion and a Great Crested Flycatcher was heard near the river.  The Cerulean Warblers sang once or twice, but refused to cooperate.  The Parula, Prothonotary, and Yellow-throated Warblers were more cooperative as was a Red-eyed Vireo.  At the end of the trip, Richard heard a Kentucky Warbler singing behind the headquarters and a bit or searching produced it for most.
