Delmarva Birding Spring Weekend
Delaware Bayshore and there is no better place to experience the phenomenon than Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Thousands of shorebirds, of up to twenty species or more, from tiny peeps to American Avocets and of every size and shape in between can be found in the refuge during the dog days of summer. We should also see large numbers of herons, egrets and ibises as they gather in large feeding flocks prior to heading south in the fall. With luck, we may find Marbled and Hudsonian Godwit, American Golden-Plover, Ruff, Wilson’s Phalarope and White and White-faced Ibis among the more commonly seen species. Morning field trips will be held on Saturday, Aug. 1 and Saturday, Aug. 29. Visit www.DelmarvaBirding.com for more information and to register.
