Field Trip Leader: VSO Leaders
I wanted to let other MBC members know about this upcoming field trip offered by the Virginia Society of Ornithology. Guy and I plan on attending and hope that others from the club would like to join us. We have attended several VSO trips and they are always well organized and lots of fun.
Join us June 7-9 in Warsaw for VSO’s summer field trip to the Northern Neck of Virginia! We’re working with Dr. Ashley Peele, State Coordinator for the second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2), to schedule our next summer field trips in under-birded areas of Virginia. We welcome your eyes and ears as we search for signs of breeding birds in Warsaw, Tappahannock, and surrounding areas.
To help us plan for the weekend, please register in advance. Provide the names of participants in your party with a telephone number and email address so we can contact you if needed. Register with Meredith Bell, trip coordinator, at [email protected] or 804-824-4958.

Field trips will be held: Friday, June 7 – afternoon only Saturday, June 8 – all day Sunday, June 9 – morning only We are still finalizing the locations we’ll visit, and a detailed itinerary will
be sent to all registrants prior to the trip. Our goal is to combine favorite birding spots in the area with areas that need coverage. If you have any questions, contact field trip coordinator Meredith Bell at (804) 824-4958 or [email protected]
