Natural History Society of Maryland: Bird Walk at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary

Date: August 17, 2019

Time: 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Location: Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, Wrighton Road, Lothian, MD, USA

Join us for a birding field trip at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary with Pete Givan! Jug Bay consists of 1,700 acres of open water, tidal freshwater marshes, forested wetlands, upland and riparian forest, creeks, meadows, pine and sand barrens, and fields along the eastern shore of the Patuxent River. Since we are doing this walk at the end of August there is no telling what we can get. There have been some anomalies over the years such as a Roseate Spoonbill and a Glossy Ibis. It can also yield an early migration of warblers. We should see a variety of hawks, rails, and shorebirds. Either way trails through all of these habitats offer great birding year round!
