EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Be alert and get your cameras ready for a rite of spring.
East Brunswick Birding invites residents to join them for their Spring Big Day Tour of the township's birding hotspots (including Dallenbach's, Heavenly Farms, Edgeboro Landfill, Bicentennial, Jamesburg and Ireland Brook Parks) on Saturday May 5. The adventure begins at Dallenbach Park at 7:30 am and continues until around 1:00.
This annual event is sponsored by the EB Environmental Commission and the Friends of the EB Environmental Commission.
With the town’s variety of habitats, birdwatchers should be able to see a good mix of migrants and breeders. As the weather has not been so great on the groups last three outings, but Steven Albert, the group's moderator says, "We’re due for a bright sunny, warm day!"
Over 60 species were spotted last year even on a rain-shortened day.
The rain date is Saturday May, 19.
