Bird Walk: Barnegat Inlet State Park
January 4, 2020 –
Barnegat Inlet SP lies at the northern tip of Long Beach Island, NJ. We will meet birders at the State Park lot behind the famous lighthouse at 9 am. After scanning Barnegat Bay, we will walk alongside the jetty bordering the Inlet, birding there and along the Atlantic Ocean beach, returning to the lighthouse by 12 noon through the dunes. Target birds include Harlequin and Long-tailed Ducks, Common Eider, Purple Sandpiper, and Great Cormorant. Birders should anticipate cold and windy conditions, and dress accordingly. Water and sunblock recommended. The walk will be followed by clam chowder on LBI (Ship Bottom)
