Join Education Director Kim Check on an early morning bird walk on Sunday at Assateague Island National Seashore. Many bird species of songbirds and shorebirds make use of this barrier island during their transcontinental migration in the spring. This is a great opportunity to view the early migrants who pass through. The walking portion of this bird outing will be no longer than a ½ mile on a well maintained national park trail. Fieldtrip departs from the OC Convention Center promptly at 7 a.m. and returns at 9 a.m. Maximum of 10 participants per trip.
