People and Nature Together - Sussex County's Motto

. . .and it's a good motto for this northernmost NJ county. CMBO's volunteer naturalists make an annual expedition to Sussex to wallow in the rich natural heritage here (some of the spoils pictured below). We also offer an annual Birding by Ear Workshop here every late May. Yet another way to see for yourself is to check out the Sussex County Birding Festival May 5-6.

[Cerulean Warbler belts out a song, High Point State Park today, one of 10+ we encountered. Click to enlarge photos.]

[One of the last NJ Golden-winged Warblers, paired with a Blue-winged/Golden-winged hybrid in the Delaware Water Gap NRA, pre-sunrise today.]

[Yellow-throated Vireo, High Point today.]


[An easier chance, same bird as the above - Grasshopper Sparrow, Wantage Grasslands today. Check out New Jersey Audubon's magazine, current issue, for directions.]
