UPCOMING NATURALIST LED PROGRAMS
SPECIAL/NEW/FREE: Weekday Birding by Bicycle led by NJA Associate Naturalist Pete Axelrod. Dates currently scheduled are April 15, April 23, May 6, and May 20.

WARBLER ID WORKSHOP, Thursday, April 18, 2013, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
This is a program offering an opportunity for you to sharpen your skills at identifying America’s most beautiful songsters in their finest breeding attire. The program will cover 35 species of eastern resident and migrant warblers. Images will illustrate diagnostic field marks to help you separate members of this difficult group in the field. This program will be presented by Pete Bacinski, NJA All Things Birds
THIRD SATURDAY UP WITH THE BIRDS, Saturday, April 20, 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
WARBLERS BY EAR, Saturday, April 27, 2013, 7:30 to 11:00 a.m.
Although this will be an ideal follow-up to Pete Bacinski’s indoor Spring Warbler ID, it is not necessary that you attend both to enjoy the beauty of these migrants in our woodlands. This program will be a field experience lead by Carole Hughes and sponsored by NJA All Things Birds. Duke Farms serves as a wonderful migrant trap in Central NJ and this morning should provide ample opportunity to learn or sharpen your skills in listening for birds. Some previous birding experience it is recommended but you do not need to have experience with identification by ear to participate.
