Pea Island Refuge Adds Sunday Morning Bird Walks for Winter and Spring

Ron Marchand & Pat Moore
For many years, Pat and Neal Moore have led public Bird Walks year round on Friday mornings on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, Wednesday and Thursday Bird Walks are added to the schedule to accommodate larger numbers of visitors. Since winter brings "week-end warriors" to the Outer Banks during the colder months, the refuge will be offering both Friday and Sunday morning Bird Walks beginning mid-February and extending through April, 2008. Like the other walks, the Sunday Bird Walk will begin at 8:00 am and meet on the front porch of the Visitor Center. These walks will be led by Refuge Volunteer Ron Marchand. For more information about these walks or other programs on local national wildlife refuges, call 252-473-1131 or visit our web site at http://www.fws.gov/alligatorriver. Marchand is shown above with Pat Moore.
