Big Day 2013, East Brunswick’s winter bird count, was held on January 19th. Board members of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission, The Friends of the Environmental Commission, ‘Friends’ members and local birders spent the day looking for and cataloging bird speciesat different locations in East Brunswick.
We met at 8am near the EB Public Library and made our way to the first birding location – the EdgeboroLandfill. Other locations visited during the day were: Keystone Park, Jamesburg Park, Dallenbach Lake, Duhernal Lake, Heavenly Farms, ‘Pig Farm’ near the Ireland Brook and Farrington Lake. By the end of the day we counted a total of fifty two bird species..
Thank you to everyone who participated – it was a fun and exciting day and our efforts addedto our knowledge of wildlife and nature in our town.
