Spring is for the birds! Are you looking for a fun way to jazz up your spring birding? Look no further than the ASNV Birdathon. Get together two to five of your best birding buddies and set off into northern Virginia to identify as many species as possible in 24 hours!
This walk follows one of the great paved paths through Reston woodland along the creek where bird activity in Spring can be lively and varied. Sponsored by the Reston Association and The Bird Feeder of Reston.
The Audubon Society of Northern Virginia has conducted the Northern Virginia Bird Survey for over 20 years, and has been discovering some positive population trends, as well as some that are unnerving.
Mid-week walks can be great fun. Bles is good for both migrants and residents. Jean Tatalias leads. Sponsored by the Northern Virginia Bird Club.
Join Joette Borzik for a one-day Birding by Ear Boot Camp! We will spend a full day learning bird song in the field on the trails of the Blue Ridge Environmental Center and surrounding area.
Virginia’s Mason Neck peninsula incorporates a number of great birding sites as part of the Important Bird Area supported by Audubon. Dixie Sommers leads this walk that offers great field edges and a range of habitats. Sponsored by ASNV.
Join the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia (ASNV) for a FREE workshop to prepare for the longest running annual spring bird count in this area.
We’re probably too late for sapsuckers, but migrants and arriving summer residents will surely be abundant. Sponsored by the Reston Association and The Bird Feeder of Reston.
Just at the peak of spring migration! Workshop will focus on both field marks and songs, with an emphasis on the species we are most likely to see, including both migrants passing through and birds that breed in our region.

Return to Bles to see if new summer residents have arrived. Last year in May we had prairie warblers, redstarts, yellow warblers, and indigo buntings. Jean Tatalias leads. Sponsored by the Northern Virginia Bird Club.
