DESCRIPTION: The Eastern Shore of Virginia with its untouched barrier islands and expansive wetlands is an amazing wildlife oasis. During the fall it is a crowned jewel of the Atlantic Flyway playing host to hundreds of thousands of birds including waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds and their bird of prey pursuers as they make their way south. The Eastern Shore acts like a natural funnel and concentrates these birds into mind-blowing numbers. Join The Nature Bus and naturalist/educator James Abbott on a guided birding trip to a number of locations across Northampton County to observe this amazing annual phenomenon. We will visit Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge as well as local “hotspots”. We will cap our trip to visit the beautiful town of Cape Charles.

The bus is sanitized between each tour. We ride with windows partially open, like an open-air tram. Please stay home if you are not feeling well or have a fever.
