DECEMBER 3, 9 AM
The Rockbridge Bird Club will be sponsoring a Bird Walk for Beginning Birders on the Chessie Trail on Thursday, December 3rd, 9 AM. Note: see below about reserving a spot for this bird walk.
From Wendy Richards, Field Trip Chair of Rockbridge Bird Club:
We’ve come up with a plan for field trips during this socially-distanced time, and we hope you’ll venture out to join us. This is your chance to get outside and get to know the birds that like to hang out in our area. Starting in November, Club members will lead Bird Walks for Beginning Birders at nearby birding locations. For our first walk in this series we plan to meet at the Boxerwood parking lot at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 14th, for a 2- to 3-hour stroll through the gardens and fields. The Chessie Trail will be the location for our second walk planned for 9 am on Thursday, December 3rd. We’ll limit our group size to 4 people per leader, with 2 or 3 leaders on hand, and we’ll stay at least 6 feet apart. Masks are required. It’s important that folks reserve a spot by contacting the Rockbridge Bird Club at firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone is welcome. Dress for the weather, bring binoculars, snacks, water and wear sturdy footwear. In the event of inclement weather walks will be postponed to a later date. The emphasis of upcoming walks will ! be on getting to know our resident birds by careful observation and listening. Of course, you never know what bird might show up when you take time to focus on the outdoor world.
FOCT will be holding its annual membership meeting via Zoom this year. Date, time, and guest speaker TBA.
