Shorebirds

August 27 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Host:

Baltimore Bird Club.

Leader: Mike Hudson, mike.p.hudson@gmail.com.

Description:

Shorebird migration begins early; by the 4th of July, some species are already passing south again and by the end of August, migration for many shorebirds is peaking across our region. There are nearly two dozen shorebird species that are possible in late August in Delaware and we will work to find and identify as many as possible. We will put special effort into finding scarcer species, such as American Golden Plover, Whimbrel, Hudsonian Godwit, and Baird’s Sandpiper. Aside from shorebirds, we will look for a number of other bayshore species, including Seaside and Saltmarsh sparrows, Sedge Wrens, and White Ibis. We will visit sites along the Delaware Bay coast, including Bombay Hook NWR, Ted Harvey Conservation Area, and Milford Neck Wildlife Area. Exact schedule to be determined based on tides. Note this is an all-day trip; snacks, sunscreen, bug spray highly recommended! We will meet at the Townsend Park & Ride near Townsend, Delaware. Trip limited to 15 people. RSVP to leader.
