NJ Audubon’s Bearfort Waters & Mossman’s Brook Trail Birding Walk

June 12 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Associate Naturalist Dave Oster at Bearfort Waters to look for warblers and forest birds. We’ll first bird the swampy southern end of Bearfort Waters, where Red-shouldered Hawk, Wood Duck, and Least Flycatcher are often present. An adjacent hemlock woods typically has Black-throated Green and Blackburnian Warblers, and Worm-eating Warbler on a nearby slope. We’ll then follow Mossman’s Brook Trail to its exit on Clinton Road. The trail is extremely “birdy,” and in June rings with bird-song. We should encounter Acadian Flycatcher, Wood Thrush, Veery, Hooded Warbler and large numbers of Redstart and Ovenbird. Both Waterthrush are possible, and last year Cerulean Warblers were present in mature trees on the adjacent ridge. The walk back along Clinton Road should yield Pine and Hooded Warblers.

Insect repellent is recommended as large numbers of insects attract the large numbers of birds along the brook.

COST: $15 members, $20 nonmembers. One person per ticket.

Registration required. Walk-ins will not be permitted to participate.

Ticket sales end on 6/11/2021 at 4:00 PM.


New Jersey Audubon field trips and programs adhere to CDC guidelines; leaders have the right to ask a participant to leave the program if someone is not adhering to these guidelines for the health and safety of all. Leaders and participants must wear face coverings throughout the program and maintain social distancing (at least 6’ of separation). Leaders may remove their face covering in order to be heard by the group while maintaining social distance. Please do not come to a program if you are sick or have a sick family member. There will be no sharing of equipment including binoculars or spotting scopes.

***If you have spent time in a state that appears on New Jersey’s Travel Advisories, we request that you do not attend the program and will provide a full refund.***

Please bring your own binoculars, and spotting scope if desired. There will be no equipment available to borrow.

CANCELLATION: NJ Audubon’s programs require a minimum number of registrants to run. If we cancel, due to lack of participation, severe weather, or unforeseen circumstances, all participants will be notified as soon as possible and are eligible for a full refund. Participants may cancel without penalty if greater than 48 hours in advance. Sorry, no refund for cancellations less than 48 hours in advance unless due to health emergencies; however registrations can be transferred to another program in the future.
