Sharing the joy of birds since 1971

SMAS Picnic with Osprey on the Wicomico River, 2018

Enjoy these pictures from our Sunday, June 3, 2018 Annual Meeting and Picnic in Bushwood, Maryland, at Bluff Point River Refuge. While the weather could have been better, it was not a wash out at all. Great friends, food, and fun were had by all! We elected a dynamic new Board of Directors for 2018-2019, presented awards, and had great food. We ended the day with dancing and giggles among the resident Osprey. Thank you JES Avanti Foundation for hosting our event and Rachel Martin Jones for a fabulous show and teaching us bird nerds a new dance—the Osprey! It was fabulous!
