Upcoming Bird Walks
On this spring trip to southern Virginia, we will bird at Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, a spring warbler destination and one of the few Virginia locations for Swainson’s Warbler. We will also visit Piney Grove Preserve, where the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker is at the northern-most part of its range.
We will be running this shorebird and horseshoe crab weekend again this year. The trip begins in Lewes at 3 PM on Friday, May 25, and ends after Bombay Hook on Sunday about 3 PM. Ray Smith leads this popular weekend of birding which is limited to 20 participants and requires advance registration.
