Bird trip planned
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a day-long birding trip to Grand and Hardy counties in West Virginia on Sunday, Jan. 12.
The trip will be led by local expert Matt Orsie. It will cover mountain areas east of the Allegheny Front and focus on raptors, especially Golden Eagles.
The trip will be free and open to anyone with an interest. However, participation will be strictly limited to seven people and pre-registration will be required. To register, contact Mr. Orsie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. The anticipated return will be late afternoon.
Participants should dress appropriately for the prevailing weather because some time may be spent outside cars.
