Field Trip: Round Valley/Oberly Road in NJ
January 16, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am UTC+0Free
There is a set of lakes in western NJ just across the Pennsylvania border that hosts a lot of winter birds. Depending on the weather we can come across ducks, gulls, and sparrows. Nearby is Oberly road with grassy fields that sometime host Rough-legged hawks and other field birds. Duration will vary depending on the birds and the weather but prior trips have been back mid-afternoon.
Contact Mark if you would like to meet the group at the Route 33 park and ride instead. Meeting time would be approximately 8:00 AM in that case.

Transportation: Car pool.
Food: Bring a snack and something to drink that is easy to consume on the go.

Leader: Mark Boyd
