Field Trip Leader: Doug Rogers
Here is your invitation from President Doug Rogers to be a part of the second annual MBC Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Islands Birding Boat Trip set for January 13, 2018. To reserve your spot on the boat, please make your reservation as soon as possible. (Details follow… keep scrolling.)
Possible sitings include:
Harlequin Ducks on Islands
Three species of Scoters
Lesser and Greater Black-backed Gulls
And all of you know that birds have their own agenda; we could see a species that is totally unexpected. I have asked the Captain to provide plenty of chum for added excitement and multiple photo ops!
The boat will leave the dock at 3311 Shore Drive, Virginia Beach, VA at 9:00 a.m. and return at 1:00 p.m. – weather permitting. I will be watching the wind and weather closely and give updates on a timely basis. I will need everyone’s email and cell phone numbers so I can reach you with last minute updates.
What to bring: Food, drinks and warm clothes. Layering is the best way to go.
Cost: $35.00 per person. A tip for the mate is included in your $35.00 fee. Please make all checks payable to Monticello Bird Club. P.O. Box 4362 Charlottesville, VA 22905
To reserve your spot on the boat, please make your reservation now by contacting me directly at [email protected] or by phone at 434.409.8156; or you may email me through the MBC address at [email protected] I will need to have your money by Monday January 8, 2018.
