Troy Meadows Birding Field Trip
The Troy Meadows Birding Field Trip will be led by Dave Oster, NJ Audubon Associate Naturalist. Troy Meadows is an extensive wetland located in Eastern Morris County, a remnant of glacial Lake Passaic. With large areas of open marsh, winding streams and wet woodland, Troy offers a variety of birding opportunities. Late Autumn can be excellent at Troy, with wood duck, red-headed woodpecker, bluebird and rusty blackbird seen regularly over the past few years. The group will also look for raptors that hunt the marsh or marsh edge, late migrants, and winter visitors. There may well be a surprise or two. The group will be walking on one or more trails, depending on where the birds are. The trails are mostly flat but may be damp to wet depending on recent rainfall.
Meet at 8:30am at the Algonquin Gas pipeline cut on Troy Meadows Road in Parsippany, off South Beverwyck Road.
Cost: $6 members, $8 non-members.
