Newport Farms Winter Wonderland (DRIVING/HIKING)
8:00 – 11:00 am
Meeting Location: Cul-de-sac at eastern end of Hayes Landing Road
The 2,200-acre Newport Farm reveals spectacular winter birding replete with a remote duck-filled 70-acre freshwater pond next to the vast forests and marshes of Newport Bay. Bird lovers on this one-of-a-kind trip will enjoy short walks totalling less than a mile. The bucolic scene provides a breathtaking backdrop to one of Maryland’s most-renowned winter Bald Eagle and waterfowl spectacles. East Coast winter rarities like American White Pelicans and Golden Eagles may surprise, along with the occasional river otter.
