Had a great day birding, despite steady rains. First I participated in an early morning walk with a great group of local birders at the Bethesda-Chevy Chapter of the Isaak Walton League of America, where we saw more than 63 species at this beatiful private 366-acre farm in Poolesville, Maryland. That included for me a lifer in the Hooded Warbler. We also got great looks of Green Heron, Great Crested Flycatcher, Eastern Kingbird, four types of Vireo, lots of warblers, and a magnificent Yellow-breated Chat.

Then I visted a few spots along the Potomac River in search of the Tundra Swan, another lifer for me, which I found after about an hour of searching, and ended the day with 74 species!
