NJ Audubon: Manasquan Inlet and Beach

June 25, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Join Associate Naturalist Dave Oster to bird Manasquan Inlet and beach for shorebirds. We’ll first bird the back portion of the inlet for any seabirds that may be around. Last June a King Eider and Black-headed Gull were present. We’ll then walk about a third of a mile to the beach entrance and cross to the jetty. Highlight here is a marvelous and very active colony of nesting Black Skimmers and Least and Common Terns, and sometimes Oystercatcher. Birds can be easily viewed from the jetty and there are great opportunities for photos. Next we’ll spend some time scanning the ocean from the tip of the jetty. Wilson’s Storm-petrels are regular in June, often quite close in. Further offshore we may be able to spot Shearwaters, and a few Gannets are typically around. June is also good for whales–last year Dave watched a Fin whale repeatedly breach within binocular range. Potential for lots of sun exposure so protection is recommended. Please bring your own binoculars, and spotting scope if desired. There will be no equipment available to borrow.

Ticket sales end on 6/24/2022 at 4:00 PM. Registration required. Walk-ins will not be permitted to participate.

COST: $15 members, $20 nonmembers.
