Hatfield Swamp Winter Birding Walk

January 28 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

$10.00 - $15.00
With Dave Hall. Take a journey into the frozen swamp to search for winter visitors and lingering fall migrants that call western Essex home. While this hike is generally flat, it can be wet and/or frozen in colder weather. The majority of the Hatfield Swamp consists of forested wetlands with areas of scrub-shrub habitat and emergent wetland within the flood plain of the Passaic River. The site encompasses the Great Piece Meadows Natural Heritage Priority Site. Wintering Sharp-shinned Hawks, Long-eared Owls and Northern Saw-whet Owls are common.

Meet at the Stop and Shop parking lot on Bloomfield Ave in West Caldwell.
