WARBLER ROAD: Sun., May 7, 7:00 am
Meet leaders Tim and Alyce Quinn (312-6844) near the Bojangles at Botetourt Commons in Daleville.
We will bird a series of forest service roads between the Blue Ridge Parkway and Arcadia in search
of warblers and other Neotropical migrants. This trip usually lasts into the afternoon so bring drinks,
snacks and a lunch. Dress in layers and be prepared to carpool as pull-offs are limited.

LITTLE SPRING DAY AT FINCA ALOHA - Sun., April 30th 7:30am
If you're not birded out from Big Spring Day, join Tim and Alyce Quinn (312-6844) starting at 7:30
AM at their house in Burnt Chimney for a morning of looking for spring migrants and resident
birds. They have a variety of habitats including woodland trails, a pond, scrub and open fields, and
their property list includes over 130 species. Wear sturdy shoes as the footing is rather uneven. If
you don't want to hike, there's a big deck and lots of chairs where you can relax and do some stationary birding. If you'd like to stay for lunch, bring a dish to share. Keep an eye out for Eurasian
Collared Doves as you pass the Burnt Chimney Elementary School on your way. The Quinns' address
is 681 Edgewood Farm Lane, Wirtz, VA 24184. From Rt. 220, take a left on Rt. 697 by the Dairy
Queen/Bojangles (about 5 miles south of Boones Mill). When it ends, go left on Rt. 122. Go one mile
and turn right onto 670 (Burnt Chimney Road). If you're coming from Rt. 116, when it ends at Rt.
122, make a right and then a quick left onto Rt. 670. Whichever way you come, once you are on Rt.
670, go one mile and turn right onto 868 (Kingston). Go about .8 miles and make a right onto Edgewood
Farm Lane (at a bunch of mailboxes). Go half a mile down this gravel road. When the road
makes a 90 degree left turn onto Turkey Run, DON'T TURN. Instead you want to go straight. This is
the beginning of their driveway, and there is a bluebird box here with their house number on it on
the right of the driveway, and several old trailers on the left. You can't see the house from here, but
go a quarter mile down the driveway and you're there.
