February Field Trips
Feb. 7 (Friday): Hillandale Monthly Walk
Feb. 8 (Saturday): 2020 Raptor/Waterfowl Count
This long standing, annual Rockingham Bird Club count surveys the entire County, including Harrisonburg City. We tally waterfowl on area lakes and rivers along with raptors, including vultures. Other predatory birds, such as shrikes and kingfishers make the list, along with shorebirds we might encounter. The methodology is mainly car birding with survey stops.
Feb. 22 (Saturday): Highland County with Mike Shank
Along with enjoying the County’s wonderful scenery, this may be your best chance to see wintering Golden Eagles.
