Field Trip: Early Migration at the Point

March 30 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

March 30 – SATURDAY – 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Point Lookout State Park, St Mary’s County
10444 Point Lookout Rd, Scotland, MD 20687

Leader: Phin Rouland
Catch some of the earliest signs of migration at one of Maryland’s peak hotspots. Attendees will meet at the picnic area parking and together we’ll walk down to the Point. We’ll scan both the Chesapeake and Potomac waters for any remaining winter waterfowl as well as for spring arrivals including Osprey, Brown Pelican, and tern species. At the point we’ll target Northern Gannet which are in peak numbers passing by on migration. We’ll spend what time is left around the picnic area and on trails around Fort Lincoln. Highlights could include arriving swallow species, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and Yellow-throated Warbler. Flat but unpaved, approximately 2 mile walk. Gate fee $3 per car. Restrooms available. Limit 12.
