New Jersey has 127 miles of Atlantic coastline, which provides habitat for thousands of bird species. Many may think that all the birds have flown south for the fall and winter, but it’s a great time to get out and look for migrants from the north, such as sea ducks, loons, grebes, alcids, and uncommon gulls.
Learn what to look for and where to find these visitors from the north with photographer and author Susan Puder.
