Sandra Keller will lead a monthly field trip in Burlington County, NJ. Burlington is one of the better known counties for birding in south Jersey – but only for certain areas – mainly Palmyra. These trips will concentrate on other hotspots in the county. The schedule will include Palmyra if something rare is reported. We will explore for the seasonal birds to be expected. Since Burlington is such a large county, we will explore the western half one month, then the central and eastern half the next.
Trips will be scheduled on Sunday during hunting season and may switch to Saturday later in the year. I am going to try and keep the trips to the third weekend of the month, but please check every month as I have travel commitments that might interfere. If that happens I’ll change to the second weekend of the month. The meeting place, time, and plan for each month will be posted at the start of the month. This gives us flexibility to start somewhere in the east when needed. These trips are geared to all levels and interests in birding – photography, listing, beginners, experts, those looking to learn Burlington better, etc. Anyone is welcome to join for only part of the day if that works for your schedule. I will be submitting lists to ebird for each location and will share those lists for those participants who use ebird if desired. I also plan on writing a longish trip report covering the whole year! I am intrigued on how many species we can see for the year.

First Date – Sunday – January, 21, 2018. 7:30AM.
January’s trip will start at Taylor’s Wildlife Preserve in Cinnaminson. Please meet at 7:30AM at the parking lot on Taylor’s Lane right at the start of River Rd. It will be on the right hand side as you pull in. We will be searching for owls, sparrows, waterfowl, gulls, corms, etc. We will hit one or two river spots after here. Then maybe a spot for gulls if I scout out a good area. Then head “inland” a bit to one of the local parks that Burlington has created around the county. Again, depending on what is being seen, we can head somewhere a dusk watch. If any doubt about the weather, please email me a couple days before hand.

Barnegat Light for Winter Ducks and Seabird Photography
January 27, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 pm

http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L161004

Trip Leader: Linda Widdop

Free to all members and non-members

Barnegat Lighthouse and jetty are famous for wintering ducks including Harlequin, Long-tail ducks and Eiders. In addition, we often see Northern Gannets diving close to shore and walk amongst Purple Sandpipers, Dunlin and other shorebirds on the jetty. We also have a good chance to see Ipswich race of Savannah Sparrow and maybe even a Snowy Owl along the dunes.

Bring your camera for up close photographs of some of these species. We will linger at the jetty and have plenty of time to capture a few outstanding shots.

Meet in the lighthouse parking lot at 7:30 AM so that we can get out to the jetty in good light. Or, meet us later out on the jetty. If we have time, we can also peruse the back bay coves along LBI.

Trip Leader: Linda Widdop – look for green Fiat 500X

This trip is free to all. Please note that we will reschedule if weather forecast is bad. Please check this posting the day before the trip for update.
