Great Dismal Swamp Birding Festival 2009 Bird List

If you didn't make it out to the Great Dismal Swamp Birding Festival last month then you missed out on a lot of action. I just received an email with the attached 2009 bird list for the three day event. I had asked for the list a couple weeks ago and just got it. As you can see there were lots of warbler sightings, and a nice variety of other birds as well. Not bad for three days! I personally didn't see all of these birds during the event but thought it would be nice to see (and share) the final tally.

It must take some commitment to watch for birds for three days.
