Interested members of the public are invited to participate in the annual C&O Canal Midwinter Bird Survey on Saturday, Jan. 26.
This survey, which is coordinated by the District of Columbia Audubon Society, is designed to provide a snapshot count of birds present along the entire, 185-mile length of the canal.
Locally, the Potomac Valley Audubon Society will count the birds on a three-mile section of the canal between Antietam Creek and the Rumsey Bridge at Shepherdstown. The group conducting this count will gather at the large National Park Service parking lot on Canal Road just south of the railroad bridge, and leave from that location at 7:45 a.m. sharp. (Do not park at the first, small parking lot at the base of the hill below the Rumsey Bridge.)
Register in advance with Nancy Kirschbaum at email@example.com or 240-347-7751.
