Join Jim Farley for a morning of winter birding at Stuaffer's Marsh in Berkeley County on Sunday, December 7. 

 The event is free however registration is strong encouraged. 

Anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills.

Participants will meet in the parking area at the north end of the Marsh at 8:00 a.m.

The Preserve is located in Back Creek Valley, one-half mile south of Shanghai, on the east side of Back Creek Valley Road (County Route 7).

The preserve is only 46 acres in size, so the distances to be walked are not great. However, the terrain will include wet meadows and marshlands, as well as dry areas, so waterproof footwear is strongly recommended.

Possible species to be sighted include raptors and waterfowl.

Participants should dress appropriately for the prevailing weather and bring water. Because ticks can be a problem at the Marsh, bug spray is recommended even at this time of year.

Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.
