The Monmouth County Audubon Society will host a bird walk 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, on Sandy Hook. The trip will be led by members of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, all very familiar with Sandy Hook and its birds. “Many species of ducks, which breed in the Arctic, spend the winter in the area,” said Stuart Malmid, one of the leaders of the bird walk. “They seek protection in the coves along Sandy Hook and usually remain here most of the winter. In addition, hawks continue to hunt here all winter, and they’re fascinating to watch. And we don’t discount the possibility of seeing some really rare birds. It takes some time to find one rare duck in a flock of several hundred, but the more eyes searching the flock, the better our chances.”
Anyone interested in participating in the event can meet at 10 a.m. in Parking Lot B. The trip is open to both members and nonmembers of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, and participation is free.
Advance registration is not required. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, which can be blustery and unpredictable along the coast; wear comfortable shoes and bring binoculars and field guides. In case of questionable weather, check the organization’s website the evening before the trip for updates.
