PIC OF THE WEEK: 07/18/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Powhatan, VA • Powhatan Wildlife Management Area
Notes: This past weekend I was reminded nature’s amazing diversity. By simply changing locations a bit, I experienced a completely different environment. Having traveled to Chippokes State Park in Surry, Virginia for an arts and crafts festival, I camped a couple of nights. Day-brake seemed to start with an oddity of sounds, compared to what I typically heard back home. This heightened my senses. As the sky began to brighten, a Summer Tanager was the first to brake the silence, followed shortly there after by the “soft-machine gun” like trill of a Chipping Sparrow. Eventually more songs filled the cool moist air: Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Yellow-throated Vireo and a some Blue-gray Gnatcatchers. A Northern Cardinal seemed the only familiar sound. After the sun got a bit higher, Indigo Buntings and White-eyed Vireo calls rang from the open areas along the road. In the upper fields, Grasshopper Sparrows sang in the distance. A flock of Purple Martins churped in constant flight. Wether by sight, sound or even smell, we can experience this great diversity with merely short trip to a different habitat. This is one of the joys of nature, exciting and new each day.
