Eastern shore exploration

Join members (left to right) Mac McCord, Judy McCord, Bruce Grimes, and Chris Sokol as they explore Virginia's Eastern Shore, from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel to Chincoteague. With varying interests in our group, there's sure to be something for everyone. We will check out several sites on the Virginia Birding and Wildlife trail, searching for anything and everything natural.

Bird of the month: Cape May Warbler

Club President Jerry Via will teach us about this spruce-loving migratory visitor to the New River Valley, with helpful tips for ID and info about its life history. According to eBird, it breeds in the boreal forests of the far northern U.S. and Canada, and winters in the Caribbean and Central America -- stopping by here to say hello along the way.
