Audubon bird walk scheduled for July 13

By Staff | Jul 1, 2016

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a bird walk at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship in nearby Loudoun County, Virginia, on Wednesday, July 13. The walk will begin at 7 a.m. and be led by birding expert Deb Hale. It is free and open to anyone with an interest, regardless of their birding skills. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged but not required. Easy registration is available on the Society’s website at www.potomacaudubon.org.

The Center is located at 11661 Harpers Ferry Road (VA Route 671), a couple of miles south of Route 340 and just opposite the former Neersville Fire Department. Look for a small sign with the Blue Ridge logo.

Plan to meet before 7 a.m. in the Center parking Lot.

This trip will cover about three miles and last about three hours. It should offer opportunities to see a good variety of birds, including warblers, vireos, flycatchers, tanagers, gnatcatchers and raptors. Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions, and bring along water and insect repellent. PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own. Various trip details could change depending on weather or recent bird sightings.
