The carpool will leave from Lowes (Lewes) at 8:00 for our field trip to Blackwater NWR. We will bird around the refuge HQ and traverse the Wildlife Drive loop. Then we'll head to Cambridge, MD where we will view waterfowl from the Oakley Street waterfront and eat lunch downtown.
Targets: sparrows, waterfowl, raptors, winter birds. We should be able to observe and photograph at close range: canvasback, redhead, greater and lesser scaup, ruddy duck, American wigeon, mallard, black ducks and many more species. Both bald and golden eagles are possible at Blackwater. Contact Rob Blye if you plan to carpool.
