Field Trip August 7, 2011, 7pm - Martin Madness

Join us evening of 7 August for Martin Madness in Richmond! Have you ever witnessed the fall spectacle of  clouds of, literally thousands of purple martins, swirling and pirouetting in the late light of day, made frantic by the attacks of a nearby peregrine falcon who hunts them in their nightly roosting ritual? Me neither! But we have the chance to enjoy just that, on the evening of 7 August.  A Sunday eve is our choice to ensure ease of parking and walking to the roost site at the 17th Street (and Cary St) Market in downtown Richmond.

If you are inclined to travel on your own, we will see you at the market square at 7 that evening.  If you prefer to carpool with other Williamsburg Bird Club Martin and Peregrine fans, we will depart for Richmond at 6 in the evening on Sunday, 7 August from the IHOP parking lot near Walmart, at 199 and Rochambeau Road in Williamsburg.  Hope you will join us for what should be a pleasant and memorable evening! For any further info, call Geoff Giles at 757-645-8716.
