Patuxent Bird Club/PGAS
Reservations required; email Fred Fallon at email@example.com.
By popular demand, Fred and Jane Fallon have agreed to reprise their renowned field trip to view Red Knots and other migrating shorebirds of Delaware Bay. Fred and Jane will lead us to several areas along the Bay to see migrating shorebirds that mass to feed on Horseshoe Crab eggs. Be prepared for an all-day outing. Bring scope, lunch, snacks, water, insect repellent, and appropriate weather-related gear. (There is no place to purchase food once we start birding.) The group will meet at the Bombay Hook Visitor Center; plan to arrive there no later than 9 AM. (Note that the driving time from Bowie is 1 ½ – 2 hrs. and can be longer if the Bay Bridge is backed up.) When Fred responds to your email RSVP, he will provide opportunities for people who need a ride to arrange for car-pooling. Further information will be supplied before trip day. Full day or you can leave for home when you want.
For directions to Bombay Hook, see https://www.friendsofbombayhook.org/visitorinfo.html Be aware of the toll at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge; the bridge no longer has cash toll lanes and all tolls are collected through EZPass or Video Tolling.
