The Birds of Spring

Surveys for flora and fauna are turning up evidence of the changing seasons, along with some new finds. Below is a list of birds documented on mountainous terrain immediately south of Charlottesville by the bird team during the past couple of weeks. The tree swallow to the left was noted during survey at Quarry Gardens in Schuyler.  
The photographs featured are by Theo and Ezra Staengl. The bird list was compiled by Ezra Staengl and the bird team.
