The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (CBBT) Authority has reserved Saturday, February 20 for us to conduct our annual field trip to the bridge tunnel islands. This trip has been a big hit the last two years and we're hoping for another good outing this year! The birding will begin at 9:00 AM at the CBBT toll booth plaza parking lot and we'll plan for three hours on the islands. We'll carpool from the Colony Square parking lot at roughly 7:30 AM and meet up with any separate drivers at the CBBT where we'll condense into as few cars as practical.
As in past years, the CBBT security policies require us to provide a list of participants no later than 10 days in advance of the trip. The cost is $10 per person ($150 per 15-person group) to pay for the security personnel who will escort us to the three islands not open to the public.
So, if you would like to participate please take the following steps:
2. Fill out the attached participant form, sign it, and either scan it and e-mail it to Jim, bring it to the January club meeting, or mail it to Jim by Feb. 1st; and
Jim would like to send the CBBT security office all of our forms by February 1st. Please let Jim know if you have any questions about the trip. Additional details about logistics will be forthcoming as the trip nears. Also look for information soon about our CBBT by Boat Trip, which is tentatively scheduled for February 6.

The Bird Club has published “The Birds of Virginia’s Colonial Historic Triangle.” Editor Bill Williams compiled the data from local birders' records since the 1960's and 1970's. The cover, shown here, sports a stunning photo of our mascot bird, a Red-headed Woodpecker taken by Club member Mike Powell at Greensprings Trail. The book contains over 30 color photos by local nature photographers.
You can obtain one of “Bill’s Books” at just about any Bird Club event. They are also available at Morrison’s Flowers and Gifts at Colony Square Shopping Center on Jamestown Road and at Wild Birds Unlimited at Monticello Marketplace.
