Birding by Canoe at Days Cove

May 7 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Host:

Baltimore Bird Club

Leader: Sam Tillman, sam.tillman@gmail.com, 443-844-5917.

Description:

Explore Days Cove from a canoe! There is nothing quite like the experience of birding by boat and truly slipping into the natural habitat. Days Cove is a unique location in Baltimore County as it is the confluence of the Big and Little Gunpowder Falls, the spot where they empty into the Chesapeake Bay, and is usually closed to the public. The habitat is a forested wetland with abundant coves to explore and provides excellent opportunities to see Marsh Wrens, Least Bitterns, Rails, and other wetland specialties. The trip will start at the Days Cove Environmental Education Center where canoes and lifejackets will be provided for $10 per participant, to be collected on-site before the trip (cash preferred). No experience is necessary, but participants must be at least 12 years old to join us. Hats, sunscreen, insect repellent, and layered clothes are recommended as we’ll be on open water for around 2.5 hours and conditions can be unpredictable. In case of inclement weather or windy conditions, which would make paddling unsafe, we’ll make this a walking trip or cancel altogether (I’ll contact you if this is the case). The gates will be locked promptly at 8:10 am, so please be prompt! LIMIT OF 20 PARTICIPANTS, RSVP to leader required.
