July 10, 2017, Monday - Bird Walk, Windmill Point in Lancaster County


On Monday, July 10, the Northern Neck Audubon Society will conduct a bird walk at Windmill Point led by Jeff Wright.


Windmill Point, the eastern most part of Lancaster County, juts out into the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Rappahannock River.  It is listed as a birding hotspot on e-Bird which makes it a good location to see a variety of bird species.  Possible sightings include Brown Pelicans, Killdeer, Spotted Sandpipers, Great Black-backed and Laughing Gulls, Royal and Common Terns, Red-headed Woodpeckers, Indigo Buntings, Osprey, and Great Blue Herons.


The walk will begin at 9 a.m. at Windmill Point Beach.  From the stoplight in White Stone, drive east approximately 8 miles to the end of Windmill Point Road / Rt. 695 where the group will meet.  The group will walk along the shoreline of the beach and the parking areas of Windmill Point Marina along the water.


Several pairs of loaner binoculars will be available.
