MOS Convention Boat Trips

The Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS) has teamed up with Delmarva Birding Weekends to host these special birding boat trips on February 3-4, 2018, just for MOS Conference Participants!

We’ll meet at the Ocean City Fishing Center for three near-shore pelagic trips aboard the Morning Star with Capt. Monty Hawkins. The guided experiences will explore the water and jetties around the Ocean City Inlet for shorebirds, scoters, sea ducks and loons, and the offshore waters of the Atlantic for alcids, jaegers, and phalaropes, and other winter oceanic species.
