Shannondale Springs bird walk planned

By Staff | May 31, 2013

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a bird walk in the Shannondale Springs Wildlife Management Area on Saturday, June 15. There is no fee and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills. Children will be welcome.

Participants should plan to meet at 7 a.m. at the parking lot by the WMA boat launch site off Mission Road.

The walk will focus on breeding populations of warblers, vireos and orioles. No pre-registration is required.

Participants should bring water and insect repellent and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions. The Society will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

The walk may be canceled in the event of severe weather.
