These little-known Middlesex County hotspots provide green oases for migratory species. Warren Park (at the border of Woodbridge & Perth Amboy) has an excellent hardwood forest—complete with understory that is excellent for thrushes, vireos, and warblers; we’ll also visit the Oros Wildlife Preserve where pin oaks, brushy fields, and a large pond/wetland will complement the day’s bird list.

Location: Meet at Warren Park at the parking lot just north of the “open grove.” Directions to the park and a map can be found here: http://www.middlesexcountynj.gov/About/ParksRecreation/Pages/PR/Warren-Park.aspx
