Field Trip Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (aka Brigantine NWR)

Field Trip Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (aka Brigantine NWR)

Meet at the Visitors Center Parking Lot at 8:30am @ 39.4650,-74.4478.  We will bird the refuge for waterfowl, raptors and other fall migrants. Bring your lunch and a scope if you have one.


We will begin at the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Arrival is scheduled for 8:30 AM. We will give folks time to use rest rooms and assemble near the Visitors Center so we can bird in the fields and the trails that lead from the center by 9:00 AM.  The car route around the refuge is only open to Turtle Cove.  We will travel those parts of the refuge that are open and take full advantage of the trails. After birding at Forsythe we will travel to the north end of Brigantine Island where we will opportunities to look for scoters, loons, Long-tail Ducks etc. Pack your lunch and snacks and we will eat as we go. The weather forecast looks outstanding.  Look forward to seeing you there!
