ESSEX COUNTY SOUTH MOUNTAIN RESERVATION BIRDING FIELD TRIP
BIRDING FIELD TRIPS IN ESSEX COUNTY led by Dave Hall
Spring field trips offer the opportunity to see species of birds that are passing through New Jersey on their way to breeding territories farther north and other migrants that are returning to the state to nest. The trips also offer a chance to learn the territorial songs and behavior of birds that are residents all year long. This is a wonderful time of year to visit the Essex County Parks System. Advance registration is required; please call 908.766.5787 or e-mail email@example.com to register.
