Thanks for visiting the Sandy Hook Century Run team page. Linda Mack, Carole Hughes, and I look forward to spending a full day at the peak of spring migration scouring the hook's varied habitats in search of every bird we can find, raising money for NJ Audubon/All Things Birds!
We started the century run at the hook more than 20 years ago, and still enjoy doing it. Over the years, we've a great number of rarities in addition to some excellent migration days. Some of the more unusual birds encountered include Anhinga, King Eider, Mississippi Kite, Wilson's Plover, Little Gull, Roseate Tern, Eurasian Collared-Dove, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Philadelphia Vireo, and Prothonotary Warbler.
