Field Trip: Round Valley/Oberly Road in NJ

January 16, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am UTC+0

Free

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.

Difficulty:  Medium.  Wintery conditions.  Potentially walking on snow and ice and along roads.
Transportation:  Car pool.
Food:  Bring a snack and something to drink that is easy to consume on the go.
Equipment:  Dress warmly.  Bring cash to share the cost of the ride with the driver.
Leader:  Mark Boyd
