Weather: low 51- high 64 , mostly overcast with a few sun breaks

Location: Riverbend , Great Falls, Virginia

Time At Location: 7 AM - 3 PM

Our slowest day in our 14 year history. Virtually no Passerines. Always a fun day but we struggled to get to our total of 39. had some noisy non birding groups nearby this year but that can't be blamed. We always appreciate our visitors and introduced Bald Eagles to a few. We had a pair sitting on Md side of the Potomac in our scopes most of the day. Always next year to look forward to.
