Two Northern VA Birding Resources

I was poking around the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens website, trying to plan a visit, when I found that they offer two seemingly useful PDFs: Common Kenilworth Aquatic Birds and a Bird Relative Abundance Checklist.

In other words, one document helps you name what you think you saw, and the other document helps you confirm it by telling you how likely (or unlikely) your find is.

Field guides can be tricky: too exhaustive, and you can't find what you're looking for; too terse, and they aren't useful. The 6 page Common Birds list looks like it falls neatly between these two extremes.
