November Field Trip to Hog Island, Nov. 20, 2011

Join the Williamsburg Bird Club for a Sunday field trip in November to Hog Island.  We can only access this prime birding location on Sunday, due to hunting seasons this time of year.  We will be led by Brian Taber through some super marsh, woodland and field habitat known for an exciting variety of birds and critters!

Name Hog Island doesn't sound enticing?  Try this.  Join us on a free cruise departing from a historic location on a slow boat to Scotland (Jamestown ferry)! Then, en route, we'll be makin' Bacon (or at least his castle) on a lovely distant shore drive to our destination! There, you won't want to miss this one!!

Actually, without any hype the exceptional variety of birds we can expect to see there are reason enough to join us.  For those who would like to carpool and caravan, we will depart from Colony Square Shopping Center (south of intersection of Jamestown Road and 199) at 7:00 a.m. Sunday, November 20.   For those who prefer to meet us there, we plan to be at the entrance to the Surry Nuclear Power Plant, which is the entrance to the Hog Island Wildlife Reserve, at about 8:00 a.m.  Please bring photo ID for entrance to the Reserve and note that a cursory car search for security can be expected and is in the interest of safety while visiting this site.

This should be a great day's birding and we hope you will join us.  For any additional info needed please contact Geoff Giles.
