Join Deb Hale as she welcomes winter with a Winter Solstice Bird Walk at Virginius Island. 

The walk will take place at Virginius Island in Harpers Ferry. Participants should park and meet in the lot at the intersection of Shenandoah Street and Route 340 in Harpers Ferry at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 21. 

Registration is strongly encouraged, however there is no fee and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, regardless of their birding skills. Children will be welcome.

The walk, lasting about 3 hours, will involve about 2 miles of level walking including railroad tracks.

Species likely to be sighted include raptors, waterfowl, and other winter birds.

Participants should bring water and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions, expecting it to be chilly. 

The trip will be canceled in the case of severe weather.

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

For those that are able, Deb has extended a gracious invitation to a light lunch at her house following the walk. Please feel free to join her as she takes a step back from the busy holiday season to enjoy time with fellow birders and friends.
