It's that time of year again! NJ Audubon's World Series of Birding is this Saturday, May 12. Last year, our team, the Sandy Hook Bird Observatory Ocean County Wanderers, had a lackluster day birding Ocean County. This year, the brains behind our operation is having some health issues and we will not be competing in Ocean County. Instead, the team is doing a Big Day Stay at the Sandy Hook Hawk Watch platform.
I decided to opt out of the Big Day Stay and, instead, I am helping lead the Sandy Hook Century Run team. This team does a "Sandy Hook only" run and typically finds around 130 species – not bad for a 1700 acre peninsula. Anyone is able to participate on the Century Run team for a small "per bird" donation. We have about 30 people signed up already which means big bucks for the Sandy Hook Bird Observatory.
If you're interested in helping to sponsor our team, you can use this form. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures. Pray for good weather!
