Northern New Jersey and adjacent areas in New York are very exciting birding destinations for breeding birds. This trip is about quality rather than quantity. We will concentrate on some of the more southerly warblers, including cerulean, Kentucky, worm-eating, and yellow-breasted chat. In addition to these species that are rarely seen in Eastern Massachusetts, we will visit a place that has breeding golden-winged warblers, a species recently lost as a breeder in Massachusetts. Of course, this trip is not just about warblers. We will be looking for other “southern specialties” including blue grosbeak and summer tanager, as well as cuckoos, flycatchers, and many more exciting species.
During our four-day trip, we have planned our itinerary to include some of the most productive birding areas in New Jersey (Garret Mountain Reservation, Bear Swamp, Forsythe NWR, Estelle Manor, Belleplain State Forest, and Fortescue Beach) and adjacent New York (Doodletown and Sterling Forest). Of course, we will keep up on sightings and may detour, depending on latest information.
The listed fees are for double occupancy. The additional fee for a single room is $500. Please call for a detailed brochure.
