This scrubby bank bordered by mature forest at the summit offered interesting birding this morning. Our group encountered both Blue-winged and Golden-winged warblers here, on territory and within earshot of one another. Hybrids have turned up in this immediate vicinity before.
The rich forests in and around the New River Gorge are well known for Cerulean Warblers, and this one put on quite a show for our party this afternoon. Some of its companions included Hooded, Black-and-white, and Worm-eating warblers, Ovenbird, and American Redstart. Work other nearby habitats such as piney woods and river bottoms, and you'll add even more species to your warbler list.
