7 SBC members traveled to Virginia in April reported a total of 76 species (list). It was a great trip but we were all surprised that there was not more bird activity at Dismal Swamp NWR. We did find the Swainson's warbler and 3 of us listened to it sing for several hours while 3 of us actually saw it! Warblers included prothonotary, hooded, redstart, yellowthroat, prairie, northern parula and ovenbird. There were virtually no herons or other waterbirds which surprised us. It seems as if the orioles, tanagers and other neotropical migrants had not yet arrived.
