Comments from Kurt Gaskill on the January 4 2008 Christmas Bird Count for Nokesville Sector 1:
Our highlights were Gadwall, Green-winged Teal, and Hooded Mergansers near the airport, American Woodcock on Parkgate Rd before dawn, Lesser Black-backed Gulls (both second winter) at the landfill (nope, no Iceland's; apparently the next day there were so many present that, reportedly, one was waiting on Bob 's pick-up to go joy riding), Barn Owl calling in the night on Parkgate Rd, Red-breasted Nuthatches in several places, 75 Horned Lark on the sod farms southish of the airport, a single American Pipit flyover at the Landfill, 3 American Tree Sparrows and a single Common Grackle (odd!) at the wetlands, Brown-headed Cowbird at the Landfill, and Purple Finch scattered in a few spots. Biggest miss were no accipiters. We tallied 67 species, not bad considering that, save for the Landfill, these were all new winter birding places to us.
