FIELD TRIP — BIRDING 101
October 13 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Leader(s): Bob Boxwell and Margarita Rochow
Calling on all wannabe birders!! Youths Welcome!! Are you tired of wondering, “What bird is that?” Do you want to get better at knowing what birds you are seeing? Birding 101 is the field trip for you! The more you walk the walk, the better you become! The location at the Elms Environmental Education Center offers a great habitat for birds. Bob and Margarita will point out helpful identification points, such as bird bill and facial markings, plumage details, field marks, flight patterns, sound, behavior, and habitat and seasonal expectation. Learn about birding apps too. Directions: 49300 St James Road, Dameron, MD 20628. Take Rte. 235 south, then left onto St. James Church road (opposite Mattapany Road). You will see the sign for the Elms Environmental Education Center. We will meet in the “hunter’s parking lot” on the right about 100 yards before the gate. RSVP to Bob Boxwell at
