Audubon plans trip for Shenandoah River sites

By Staff | Jul 1, 2011

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a birding trip to various Shenandoah River sites in Jefferson County on Wednesday, July 13.

The trip is free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along.

The trip will begin at 6:30 a.m. and will require pre-registration. To preregister and arrange a meeting place, contact trip leader Sandy Sagalkin at 240-291-6465 or mon sansagalkin@myactv.net.

This trip will offer good opportunities to see Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Bald Eagles, Baltimore and Orchard Orioles and several warbler species.

This is the breeding season for many bird species and data gathered from this trip will be used for the West Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas program.

The trip will mostly involve driving from place to place by car, with not much walking.

Everyone should plan to bring along water and, as necessary, a hat, sunscreen or rain gear. Binoculars will be available for those who do not own any.

In case of inclement weather, contact the trip leader to see if the trip is still on.
