    The Monarch Alliance, a program of the Potomac Valley Audubon Society, will sponsor the third Annual Butterfly Count along the Final Attack Trail on the Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD on Saturday, July 29.

    The count is being cosponsored by the Washington County Bird Club.

    This event is free and open to anyone with an interest, regardless of his or her butterfly expertise. This will be a perfect family activity, and children, accompanied by adults, are encouraged to attend.

    Registration is required and limited to 20. 

    As butterflies do not fly in the rain and heavy overcast can keep them down, participants should check the PVAS website for postponements if bad weather is forecast.  If the count is postponed, a notice will be placed on the website by 9 p.m. on the day before the count.

    If the count is postponed, we will try to reschedule.

    The Final Attack Trail is in the area where the Union Army made its final advance to drive the Confederate Army from Maryland on September 17, 1862, only to be turned back by A.P. Hill’s final Confederate counterattack.

    It is also the site of an extensive effort by the Antietam National Battlefield to restore and preserve native grasslands on the Otto Farm fields in the Battlefield's southwest corner.  The park has recently been the recipient of a pollinator grant from the National Park Service, which will be used to add native wildflowers to the existing stands of native warm season grasses at the farm.

    The butterfly count, along with data on birdlife and other wildlife, will be used in documenting the value of the project at the Otto Farm.  PVAS has been active in supporting the project and assisting park personnel in monitoring bird life in the area for the last two years.

    Participants should plan to meet count leaders at the Burnside Bridge at 10 a.m. Sandy Sagalkin will be the co-leader and will help identify bird life during the count. 

    To get to the Burnside Bridge parking area from Sharpsburg, head northeast towards Boonsboro. Take the first right turn after leaving Sharpsburg onto Rodman Avenue, which takes you into the battlefield. Turn left at the “T” and follow the road up the hill to the parking area.

    The count will last about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and cover mostly level terrain. The trail is about 2 miles in length.

    Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions, and bring along water, a broad-brimmed hat, and insect repellent. PVAS has a limited supply of loaner binoculars for those who do not have their own.

    PVAS Trip Leader: Jim Farley

    The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a birding trip to the National Conservation Training Center outside Shepherdstown on Saturday, October 21.

    The trip is free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, but space will be limited and registration by Wednesday, October 16 is required. Children will be welcome.

    After checking in at the guard station, please meet in the 'blue' parking area.

    For more information or any questions you may have, please contact Krista Hawley at adultprograms@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026.

    The bird walk will highlight fall migrants and raptors.

    The Center's 538-acre campus is not normally open to the public, so this is a wonderful opportunity to visit the campus and enjoy their trails while birding. 

    The campus contains a mix of fields and forest, providing good habitat for a rich variety of bird species such as sparrows, juncos, raptors, bluebirds, woodpeckers and waterfowl. One of the highlights of the bird walk is observing NCTC's active eagle nest. 

    The trip will last about two and a half hours and involve walking about two miles over moderate terrain.

    Everyone should plan to wear comfortable walking or hiking boots that can protect against possible muddy trails and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions. It is also a good idea to bring along sunscreen and drinking water.

    PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

    The trip may be cancelled if there is bad weather.

    Topic: The Amazing Songs of the Vesper Sparrow

    Presenter: Wil Hershberger

    Cost: free

    Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, November 8th at 7:00 PM for our regular monthly program.

    Mr. Hershberger, local bird expert, presents “The Amazing Songs of the Vesper Sparrow".

    Wil Hershberger, who lives in Hedgesville, is one of the area's leading naturalists.

    Inspired by Don Kroodsma’s, “The Singing Life of Birds,” Wil started to listen carefully to the songs of Vesper Sparrows. Wil had recorded Vesper Sparrows in southern Berkeley County, WV years ago, but found that they were all gone. The only location with more than one or two male Vesper Sparrows during the breeding season was found to be the Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, MD. 

    In Wil’s talk we’ll learn about the Vesper Sparrow’s natural history, how we study bird songs, the amazing way we can “see” bird songs, and the fascinating way that Vesper Sparrows compose their songs.

    Wil has been photographing and recording the natural world for more than two decades and his work has been published in magazines, calendars, and books. He is coauthor of "the Songs of Insects", a book and audio CD published by Houghton-Mifflin Company. He is also an instructor of our very popular Birding 101 class.

    His recordings of birds, frogs and insects are archived at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.

    His website can be found at natureimagesandsounds.com

    This program is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
