Thank you for visiting our team page. We are happy to be participating in New Jersey Audubon's World Series of Birding.
We look forward to meeting new and old friends for this event and hope you all will give consideration for joining us and having a wonderful day in the field to benefit NJ Audubon.
Join long-time NJ Audubon staff member and now volunteer Pete Bacinski and associate naturalists Mike Mandracchia, Larry Zirlin and Chris Sturm for a full day’s birding at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge called Brig or Brigantine by the birders. Brig is one of the finest refuges in the country, and should produce a wide range of raptors, waterfowl, herons, egrets, shorebirds, terns, and passerines including warblers and sparrows; we’ll spend the entire day exploring Brig’s many habitats and birds. We will do landbirding in the morning as well as a “sit” at the Gull Pond, followed by trips around the refuge’s 8-mile loop road through fresh and saltwater marshes, meadows and woodlands scouring for new “ticks” to our day list and end the day looking and listening for nightjars and owls. Participants are expected to pledge a minimum of $1 per species; we normally record 100+ species for the day. This is our first time doing a Brig century run, so we are all very excited. This is Pete’s 37th World Series of Birding, that’s all of them and Brig is Pete and Mike’s favorite place to bird in New Jersey.
