Bob Mumford will present Beautiful Bhutan with some of his excellent photos (mostly birds, but a few others as well) from his recent trip to this small Himalayan country with a “National Happiness Index.”
Surely the waterfowl have arrived in numbers and we can view them on the Lake and the woodland path that follows its shoreline. Marc Ribaudo leads. Sponsored by the Northern Virginia Bird Club.
Winter is a great time to improve your birding skills. Birds are easier to find since there are no leaves on the trees. In addition, winter brings a wide variety of ducks and geese. Several species of hawks and sparrows also call our region home during our coldest months.
The quarry is a great place to find waterfowl in winter. The woods and lake shore offer good habitat for other winter species, including resident red-headed woodpeckers. Toby Hardwick leads with Rick Purvis co-lead. Sponsored by ASNV.
Join ASNV in preparation for their annual Winter Waterfowl Count. This field workshop will help hone your identification skills. Meet up at the Woodmarsh Trail parking lot, Elizabeth Hartwell Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge.
