CHINCOTEAGUE NWR, VIRGINIA
Fantastic Atlantic Coast Migration, & Chincoteague Ponies18 October 2013 - 21 October 2013, 4 days & 3 nights
This will be a short tour of memorable birding at a beautiful location. The tour will include two days at Chincoteague NWR, plus visits to Bombay Hook NWR and Ocean City. We'll travel the length of the Delmarva Peninsula to Kiptopeke State Park and the Eastern Shore of Virginia NWR. There will be migrant warblers, shorebirds, waterfowl, and local specialties such as Brown-headed Nuthatch and American Oystercatcher. Rarities that we have found at this time of year include American White Pelican, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Eurasian Wigeon, Lark Sparrow, Dickcissel, and Snow Bunting. The Chincoteague Ponies are always a big favorite, as are the flocks of waterfowl and shorebirds that may contain a nice rarity. This will be a great weekend at a comfortable pace. Evening dining will offer seafood fare for which Chincoteague's restaurants are famous. Bob Schutsky is the scheduled leader.
