eek The Birds

no, not Alfred Hitchcock's famous movie

but rather red knots

and the like birds....

does it seem that fencing and closures come earlier and earlier every year?

got this email for NJDFW:

Help Our Beach Nesting Birds!

The Endangered and Nongame Species Program is seeking volunteers to install fencing to protect beach-nesting bird habitat. Fencing will last 2-4 hours depending on the site. The work involves pounding posts into sand, tying string and flagging between them and posting informational signage.

Volunteers should be capable of walking long distances in the sand, be dressed for the weather (it's often cold and windy on the beach in spring) and bring their own water and snacks.

Dates, times and locations are below. Fencing will only be postponed if weather is especially bad (wind, cold and light rain will not be enough to cancel).
? Wednesday, March 20, 12pm - Stone Harbor Point
? Friday, March 29 , 8:30am - North Brigantine Natural Area
? Saturday, April 6, 10am - Various sites in Monmouth County (Final locations TBD but potential sites are Belmar, Monmouth Beach and Sea Bright)

If interested, please e-mail Christina Davis at to register.
