The trip will last about three hours. It will mostly involve driving from place to place by car, with little walking. It will focus on ducks, grebes, gull, terns, and any other birds encountered.

Participants should plan to meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot in front of the Martin's Supermarket in the Jefferson Crossroads Shopping Center off U.S. 340 in Charles Town.

Everyone should dress appropriately for the weather conditions and bring water.

PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

In the event of snow on the ground or steady rain or snow, the trip might  be cancelled. Various trip details could also change depending on weather or recent bird sightings.
