Troy Meadows Bird Walk
September 26, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
Led by Andrew Eppedio and David Benvent, NJ Audubon Field Trip Assistants, and Stephanie Punnett, Program Director. We will walk Troy Meadow Road down to the marsh, and possibly some side trails. In early fall Troy offers an excellent diversity of birds – American Kestrel, Lincoln’s Sparrow, and Marsh Wren. Connecticut Warbler, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, and Philadelphia Vireo are possibilities. In recent years Red-headed Woodpecker has established a nesting presence at Troy and we will make a special effort to hear and see this beautiful bird. There is always a “surprise” or two at Troy. Be prepared for wet and muddy conditions.
Andrew and David are avid birders, and have led walks for NJ Audubon at the Cape May Festival and for Mass Audubon on Martha’s Vineyard. They have been Co-captains for NJ Audubon’s World Series of Birding Youth Team for the past 3 years.
COST: $10 members, $15 nonmembers.
Registration required. Walk-ins will not be permitted to participate.
Ticket sales end on 9/25/2020 at 5 PM.
