Blue Ridge Parkway 4/30/10

I met Vic L. on the Blue Ridge Parkway this morning. He started at the northern end and saw a few that I didn't see - I started as Reid's Gap (mm14) and we met in the middle and went from there.

I saw Yellow-rumped, American Redstarts (males and females), Cerulean (males and females), Hooded, and Black & White Warblers. Also saw a couple of Broad-winged Hawks and a Cooper's Hawk, Indigo Bunting, Scarlet Tanager, Chipping Sparrow, Eastern Towhee (including a juvenile), Red-eyed Vireos, Crows, Turkey and Black Vultures, and American Goldfinch.

Both of us heard a few Worm-eating Warblers, but neither of us saw one - it would be a new bird for me to see one. Here are a few of the photos.
