We currently have six folks interested. We need to get to about twelve to make this happen!
Trust me, it’s absolutely worth taking a day off of work to see. I was originally considering going Saturday on the day of the full moon, but it will be way less crowded on Monday. Please let me know ASAP and feel free to ask me anything! I should also be able to provide some snacks.

I’m sure all of you know how incredible this natural phenomenon is, highlighted by red knots and other long distance migrants. I would be taking us in a park bus from Patuxent river park (upper Marlboro) and/or a meeting point in Bowie off of rt. 50. Transportation and any entrance fees would be provided, at a cost of roughly $25 per person. We would ideally be heading out around 7/7:30 am and heading back before or just after sunset. I offer my interpretation, but I imagine it to be more of a collaborative effort for spotting and ID. If folks want to do eBird counts, that’s great too! We have spots for about 13 people. If you are interested, please send me a message separate from the message thread. Do hurry!
