It's only 11 a.m. and we've been birding for 5 hours already. In the middle of the Oceanville Christmas Bird Count. So far our rarest bird is this Spotted Owl in the Marsh outside of Atlantic City. We all saw it so it must be real. (Robin, Marian, Shawn, Linda & Diane)

A reminder that tomorrow, December 14th is the beginning of the refuge’s annual deer hunt in Galloway.

Wednesday to Friday, the highlighted area below is closed to the public. This includes all hiking trails (other than the Leed’s Eco Trail). The 'back' portion of the Wildlife Drive will be closed and traffic will be two-way on the d**e, with a turnaround point at what is referred to as the Dogleg (see below). Signs will mark the turnaround point on the Drive.

Regular traffic patterns resume Saturday, December 17th, and all trails will be reopened that day.

Each year, refuge managers and biologists work with NJ Fish and Wildlife to provide this hunting opportunity to the public. For more information on hunting at Forsythe Refuge, please visit https://www.fws.gov/.../edwin.../visit-us/activities/hunting. If you have more questions, contact the refuge at (609) 652-1665.

On Sunday, December 11th, we followed the trail of flamingos to Fred and Ethel's Lantern Light Tavern in Smithville for Atlantic Audubon's holiday luncheon, "Let's Flamingle." We had butlered hors d'oeuvres in the fireside room before moving into the dining room for a buffet luncheon and door prize selection. Flamingos were abundant! (that's an understatement) They were on the plates, napkins, appetizer picks, straws, centerpieces, and of course we can't forget "Pinky" the inflatable flamingo for photo ops.

If anyone else has photos please email them to [email protected] and I'll add them to this post. Hope you all had a great time!

On Sunday we completed our 4th of four yearly road cleanups of Drosera Avenue on the Galloway/Hamilton Twp. border. It only took 6 people an hour to clean one mile! After everyone's bags were combined, we ended up with three full bags of recycling and three full bags of trash...and a pair of brand new men's black sneakers that were found about 20 ft apart from each other. Possibly thrown out of a moving car window! We kept the sneakers and I'll include them in my next Veterans donation pick-up.

We'll be back looking for volunteers next year for four more cleanups. Hope you can join us for one (or two) (or three) (or four). 😁

It's a well known-fact that all Screech Owls are cute as a button, but this recent patient might be just a tiny bit cuter than the rest. This rare brown morph, they usually come in red or grey, came to us after being stuck on a lantern fly trap. (Seriously, people, lose the sticky tape!) Thankfully this bird was found and safely removed by our staff so there was minimal feather damage and is eating well. We are hopeful for a speedy return to the wild for this gorgeous bird!

“Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.” -Elle Woods

Ok, but what about pastel yellow?! Move aside, Elle, this lesser long-nosed bat may be onto something. But also, this bat isn’t normally this color; it’s actually covered in pollen! An unsung hero of fragile desert ecosystems, lesser long-nosed bats pick up tons of pollen while drinking nectar out of blooming cacti and agave flowers. One could say they’re the perfect pollinator, and YES this is one of our favorite bat appreciation photos we share every year. 😂

We're thrilled that our Oprey cam and associated tower are getting an overhaul this winter. Today, Ben Wurst from Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ joined Friends of Forsythe members and refuge staff to take down the camera and the equipment. The platform will be removed in the coming months. The new platform and NEW camera will be installed closer to the Leeds Boardwalk for better viewing. Thank you all for your work!

Due to weather conditions, the Pinelands Commission has rescheduled its free Moth Night to Thursday, October 6th, 2022.

The evening will begin with an indoor presentation: "Moths of Late Summer and Fall," focusing on an intriguing time of dispersals that bring moths from far-flung southerly locations while also being the annual flight times for moths that are specially adapted for life in the Pine Barrens and wetlands, including species of state special concern.

Presenter Ann-Marie Woods, who took the moth photo below, has photographed and recorded many of the over 1,500 moth species that can be found in New Jersey, while concentrating on moths of the outer coastal plain. She will take attendees on a stunning visual tour of a vital facet of the Pinelands that many people rarely see.

After the presentation and as darkness falls, attendees will go outside. Screens and powerful lamps will be set up in various locations to draw moth species in for attendees to photograph and record. It’s recommended that attendees bring cell phones and cameras, a flashlight, a lawn chair, and their curiosity. Ms. Woods will circulate through the screened areas, providing information about moths, natural resources, and relating her experiences and stories. The moths will be identified, and a list of the species observed will be available after the event.

The Candace McKee Ashmun Pinelands Education Exhibit, which features interactive displays, Pinelands artifacts and native fish tank and terrarium, will be open during the Moth Night festivities.
