A Breath of Fresh Air During Black Birders Week

Earlier this year Upton Hill Regional Park, Arlington NAACP’s Environmental Climate Justice Committee, Northern Virginia Audubon Society, and Arlington Master Naturalists came together and hosted their first series of Black and Latinx guided bird walks. Many people believe that there isn’t much wildlife to see in their local cities. The incentive for this series was to promote diversity and get participants’ feet wet in the exciting hobby of bird-watching. As quarantine restrictions in Virginia were lifted and people got vaccinated, the public was still interested in how to enjoy themselves outside in new ways since summer was approaching and school was let out. The Black and Latinx bird walks at Upton Hill Regional Park were a wonderful way to have folks participate in bird and plant identification. There were three walks occurring on April 24, May 8, and June 5 led by Musa Murawih and Melody Mobley.

Family of bald eagles makes for an inspiring sight for birders

As the national bird, bald eagles are an inspiring sight. While more common in southern Alaska, some do make their home in the Interior, as one pair of eagles did in the Fairbanks area. Eagles often reuse the same nest each year, and this pair returned to their large nest in late April. Photographer Eve Baker has observed them regularly from the ground about 100 yards from the nest, and a little over a month after the adults’ arrival, she saw twin eaglets poking their tiny heads above the edge of the nest. The eaglets have grown rapidly and are already flapping their gray, downy wings in practice. Baker was fortunate to be present one morning when both parents arrived minutes apart with deliveries of fish, and the mother began to feed the chicks. These photos were taken with a 600mm telephoto lens and cropped in for a close-up view.

Birding paradise: Half of all bird species in Maine spotted at Sanford Lagoons

SANFORD, Maine — Palm Warblers were everywhere. There were more of them than Bill Grabin had ever seen at any one time. Grabin and his wife were at what birders call the Sanford Lagoons, the four short-term storage ponds that are a part of the Sanford Wastewater Treatment Plant on Gavel Road. This was back in April, a time ripe for bird-watching. It’s one of two annual migrating seasons.
