A few quick views from one of my favorite local vistas.
The Wildcat Ridge Wildlife Management Area Hawk Watch also serves as an unofficial community center for nature observation and study.
A great service to the public has been provided by Bill Gallagher and more recent NJ Fish&Wildlife Volunteers. Bill will be missed.
These giving folks greet newcomers to the hawkwatch and provide birdwatching knowledge and tips to all.
The volunteers also provide raptor migration data sheets to NJF&W and other wildlife monitoring organizations.
Visit the Wildcat Ridge WMA Hawk Watch this Fall. Parking is available at the far end of Upper Hibernia Road in Rockaway Twp NJ. Ascend the gravel road on foot 6/10 of a mile before turning for Hawk Watch access. Bring binoculars, water, and a snack.
