Shennadoah River birding trip set Feb. 23

By Staff | Feb 8, 2013

The Potomac River Audubon Society will sponsor a birding trip to various waterfowl-viewing areas in Jefferson County on Saturday, Feb. 23. The trip is free and no pre-registration is required. Anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills, and children will be welcome.

The trip will last about three hours. It will mostly involve driving from place to place by car, with little walking. It will focus on ducks, grebes, gull, terns and any other birds encountered.

Participants should plan to meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot in front of the Martin’s Supermarket in the Jefferson Crossroads Shopping Center off Route 340 in Charles Town.

Everyone should dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions and bring along water.

PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

In the event of snow on the ground or steady rain or snow, the trip may be cancelled. Various trip details could also change depending on weather or recent bird sightings.

For more information or to check on possible weather cancellations, contact the trip leader, Sandy Sagalkin at monsansaglakin@myactv.net or 240-291-6465.
