New Jersey, on the Atlantic migration route, is a birding “hot spot.” Classes will cover bird identification, field guides, binoculars, migration, habitat, and the joy of birding. Come learn with us as we take three field trips: Edwin P. Forsythe NWR, along the coast, and two local spots TBD. Time and location of field trips will be sent to registered students. Field trips start early and go all morning. Forsythe trip will go until about 3 pm as it is a considerable drive from Princeton. Due to COVID-19, carpooling and sharing of binoculars is not permitted. All students are required to follow safety precautions as mandated by the NJ Department of Health.
NOTE: Those who have taken this course before or are experienced birdwatchers may enroll for the field trips only. (Please use course 137A to register for field trips only).
