Field Trip to Bombay Hook and other Delaware Bayshore Hotspots

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Host:

Patuxent Bird Club & PGAS.

Gene Scarpulla and Marcia Watson will lead

Description:

A trip to Bombay Hook and nearby sites at the height of the fall shorebird migration; this is also a good time to pick up interesting rare waders such as Tricolored Heron or White Ibis. This will mostly be a drive-and-park type trip with very little walking, but will require standing. Feel free to bring a small folding stool or lawn chair if you prefer to sit instead of stand. In addition to binoculars, bring spotting scope, sunscreen, hat, long-sleeved shirt & pants, as well as lunch, drinks, and snacks (there is no place to stop for food once we start birding). Also bring cash for Bombay Hook entrance fee ($4/vehicle), or use a current Duck Stamp or Federal permit. Full day. Meet at Bombay Hook Visitor Center parking area at 9 AM. Reservations required; please RSVP to Marcia Watson (marshwren50@comcast.net) no later than Monday August 15. May be canceled or postponed in the event of heavy rain but will proceed as scheduled if there is light rain. For directions, 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.
