Delaware Owl Chase
There are very few places within driving distance of Washington DC where one can routinely find 7 different species of owls within 30 miles of each other. Delaware is one such place. The variety of habitats, pine woods, agricultural land, wooded bottomlands, coastal marsh and extensive beach dune attract Barred, Screech, Great Horned, Short-eared, Long-eared, Saw-whet, and Snowy Owls. Several of these are found only in the winter, making February the ideal time to search for them. We will visit specific locations where the birds are known to occur.
Fee: $64 per person and includes 1 night lodging, double occupancy with continental breakfast, at the Hampton Inn and Naturalist led owl search.
Transportation and meals are not included.
