Monmouth County Audubon Society’s bird walk on June 22

 

A bird walk to explore for nesters and shorebirds will be sponsored by the Monmouth County Audubon society on June 22 in Sandy Hook.

The event will begin at 6 p.m.

The trip will be led by members of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, who are familiar with Sandy Hook and its birds.

“The evening is a great time to explore the quieter areas of Sandy Hook,” Linda Mack, trip leader and past president of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, said. “We never know what we will discover on these summer walks – herons, shorebirds, Ospreys and gulls are all regulars – and we may be able to sneak a peek at Piping Plovers, the endangered shorebirds that nest at Sandy Hook.”

The walk, which is open to both member sof the Monmouth County Audubon Society and the public, will begin in the parking lot of the old Sandy Hook Visitor’s Center, which is located just north of Lot E (1.8 miles from the park entrance).

Participation is free and advanced registration is not required.

The Audubon Society recommended that participants should bring binoculars and field guides and should dress appropriately for the weather, including clothing suitable for rain if the forecast is questionable. Insect repellent also is recommended. The walk will take place in light rain or shine. Pets are not permitted.

The Monmouth County Audubon Society, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, is dedicated to the enjoyment and study of nature, wildlife conservation, habitat protection, and education.

Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month September through May at the Knights of Columbus hall, 200 Fair Haven Road, Fair Haven.

Guest speakers address a wide variety of nature-related topics, and refreshments are provided. In addition, the group sponsors at least one field trip per month, and members receive The Osprey, the club’s bi-monthly newsletter.
