Patuxent Bird Club/PGAS
Contact David Mozurkewich, mozurk@bellAtlantic.net, for more information.

Description:

We will carpool to Fort Smallwood Park to observe the spring raptor migration spectacle. Data for the spring raptor migration are compiled annually by a team of counters organized by Sue Ricciardi from the Anne Arundel Bird Club. The number of raptors counted in a spring season ranges from 9,000 to 12,500, and fifteen different raptor species are usually observed, though not all may be present on any one day. Migration of non-raptor species is also noteworthy, especially waterfowl, swallows, and Blue Jays and other passerines. About 260 species of birds have been observed at the Park. Bring folding chair, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, drinks and snacks. Also bring cash for daily parking fee of $6 per vehicle if you don’t have an annual pass. Meet at the Bowie P&R. No reservations needed.
