This Fall Doug and Sally Ruby will be leading the Camp Swatara Birding Trip to explore the Delmarva Peninsula.  The itinerary for this trip will include visiting Bombay Hook in Delaware on Friday, Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia on Saturday, and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge of Sunday morning, before returning back to Camp Swatara.  This itinerary should provide a variety of migrating songbirds, water birds on their winter sites, and late moving raptors.

Doug and Sally Ruby’s home in Salisbury Maryland will be used as the base of operations.  Overnight housing will be at the Ruby’s or a nearby hotel. 

Cost of $130 per person includes transportation throughout the weekend, meals and lodging.
