Field Trips

Members of Montclair High School's Friends of Rand Park club search for signs of bird life outside their school.  Montclair Bird Club's Evan Cutler and Sandy Sorkin led the students on an after-school walk through Rand Park, accompanied by faculty advisor Susan Eckert. 

A Virtual Field Trip
with a Zoom "tally" at 7:30 pm, April 22

As we look forward to the time that we can gather again in the field as a group, spend some time outdoors at one of your favorite birding sites or in your own backyard, on your own or with your family, and let us know what you find. 


Our April theme is Birds in Motion. Choose your favorite active birds and prepare a dozen or so slides to share. We look forward to hearing from our members and friends here in New Jersey and across the country.

September 27 to October 14, 2022

with Rick Wright and Patrick Cardwell


We start in Cape Town and return from Johannesburg, in between visiting sites such as West Coast National Park, the Cape of Good Hope, Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, and Kruger National Park. We will enjoy a vast range of birdlife, from penguins to rollers to cisticolas, along with many of the large mammals that South Africa is so famous for. With visits to Robben Island, the site of Nelson Mandela’s long imprisonment, and Johannesburg’s Apartheid Museum, our trip also offers insight into the history and culture of this beautiful and diverse country.


Strictly limited to 12 participants plus the two leaders, this trip is open to LSNY members, members of the Montclair Bird Club, and clients of Victor Emanuel Nature Tours. For more information and to register, please email or phone Erik Lindqvist at or (800) 328-8368.   

Outdoor field trips will resume when it is safe to return to the parks and preserves.
