July 30, 2012

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor two mid-August birding trips to Eastern Panhandle sites that offer good opportunities to view migrating shorebirds.

The first trip, on Saturday, Aug. 11, will be to various locations. Participants will meet at 7 a.m. just inside the entrance to the Archer's Rock subdivision off Harlan Springs Road north of Martinsburg, W.Va.

The second trip, on Wednesday, Aug. 15, will begin at 7 a.m. at the Stauffer's Marsh Nature Preserve on Back Creek Valley Road, one-half mile south of Shanghai, W.Va. Depending on recent sightings, the trip may also include other shorebird locations in Berkeley and/or Jefferson counties.

Detailed directions to both sites, with maps, can be found on the PVAS website at www.potomacau dubon.org.

Both trips will last about three hours and are free and open to the public. Children will be welcome. Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.

No advance registration will be required. For further information, contact Sandy Sagalkin, at 240-291-6465 or monsansagalkin@myactv.net.
