Field Trip

Leader: Dean Newman

One of our best outings! Don’t miss this trip; it fills up quickly! We are fortunate to have access to sections of the navy base fronting on the confluence of the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay, which hosts airfields that provide tundra-like habitat. Previous trips have turned up winter birds such as Snow Bunting, Lapland Longspurs, Short-eared Owls, Horned Larks, Savannah Sparrows, Wilson’s Snipe, and Peregrine Falcon.

Pre-registration is required and open to U.S. citizens only. Must bring photo I.D. We will be escorted and traveling together in a van, so participant size is limited to 10. RSVP to Dean Newman at

Meet near the entrance to Gate 2, in the parking lot for the pass office.
