Next Thursday, April 22, the New Jersey Audubon Society is holding a birding hike in the Hatfield Swamp, a wetlands in the western part of Essex County. The swamp is home to several species that have been deemed endangered, including the Barred Owl and American Woodcock. NJAS says hikers may encounter early spring migrants including both passerines and raptors, as well as waterfowl.

This hike is free, but space is limited so you’ve got to reserve by contacting Kelly Wenzel at 973-226-6082 for more information and to register. Hikers should meet in the Kings supermarket parking lot in West Caldwell and be prepared for wet footing.
