By Staff | Jun 1, 2012

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a bird walk at Harpers Ferry for Wednesday, June 13. Participants will meet at 7 a.m. in the parking area on Shenandoah Street just below the intersection with Route 340.

The walk will be free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills. No pre-registration is required. Children will be welcome.

The walk will focus on the riverfront and old canal areas of Virginius Island. Likely species to be sighted include Orioles, various types of vireos and flycatchers, herons, ducks, raptors and perhaps a few types of warblers.

About three miles of level walking will be involved. For more info contact Deb Hale at 304-535-1528 or debhale72@gmail.com.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for prevailing weather conditions, and bring along water and bug spray. Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.

The trip may be canceled in the event bad weather. Various trip details could also change depending on weather or recent bird sightings.
