Bird walk planned at Harpers Ferry

By Staff | Dec 9, 2016

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor an early winter bird walk in the Virginius Island section of the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park on Wednesday, Dec. 21.

There is no fee and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills. Children will be welcome. Species likely to be sighted include raptors, waterfowl, and other winter birds.

Pre-registration is recommended but not required. To register, go to the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org.

The walk will last about 3 hours and involve about 2 miles of level walking along level ground, including some railroad tracks. Participants should plan to meet at 9 a.m. in the parking lot at the intersection of Shenandoah Street and Route 340.

Participants should bring water 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 cancelled in the event of heavy weather.

For more information, or to check on possible weather cancellation, contact trip leader Deb Hale at debhale72@gmail.com or 304-535-2346.
