I wanted to remind everyone that we have some great field trips coming up! This weekend, June 6, is the spring count at our adopted Important Bird Area, which is the Lumber River. If you want to come down and help us count birds (no experience required) you are welcome! For details contact Richard Brown at [email protected].
Continuing the Year of the Purple Martin, next month we are leading a trip in conjunction with the Museum of Natural Sciences to Manteo to see the amazing roost of Purple Martins under the old Hwy 64 Bridge. We will bird the outer banks during the day, and in the evening take a boat and watch the birds fly to roost under the bridge. Estimates put the numbers at over 100,000 Purple Martins! For information about the trip and how to register, check out the museum’s website. http://www.naturalsciences.org/programs-events/?select=1008
