CMBO Belleplain State Forest walk- 5/29/08

A report from Karl Lukens on yesterday's CMBO Belleplain State Forest walk. Unfortunately this was the last CMBO walk in Belleplain, this spring, looking for southern Jersey breeding warblers and the such. While you can bird Belleplain very easily on your own (stop into the Center for Research and Education to as for more specific directions if you don't k now your way around the State Forest) you might take a look at the Naturalist's Calendar for June. There are a number of good walks to participate in for the first month of summer. One of my favorites makes a return on Fridays, the Sunset Birding at the Meadows walk.

Thanks for the photo Karl!

"Missed a few things at Belleplain, but great looks at Hooded Warbler and Gnatcatcher on nest feeding young, Super looks at the Red-headed Woodpecker in the scope!"
