BERNARDSVILLE – Now is the time to catch migrating birds in the skies of New Jersey.

Pete Dunne, New Jersey Audubon Birding Ambassador, will lead the public to experience “a river of raptors” on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A rooftop observation deck is the perfect setting to observe migrating species like Re-tailed and Cooper’s Hawks, Osprey, Sharp-shinned Hawks and Broad-winged Hawks.
