With morning temperatures at or below 19F our brave team began our Boonton Township birding observations at approximately 6AM on Sunday December 27th 2020. Our team consisted of Nora O’Rourke, Mike Leone, Cheryl Hochberg, Rick Miles, Rick Sedivec, Jeff Scheidecker, and Dave Blinder. One of our very first birds of the day was a Great Horned Owl hooting near Kincaid Woods on Powerville Road which was a great way to start out this frigid day.
After detecting a 2nd Great Horned Owl in the dark our group proceeded to daylight birding at several locations including Boonton Township’s RVA Fields, Kincaid Woods, Leonard Park, Rockaway River (behind Boonton Senior Center), and the South end of Taylortown Reservoir. Our birding highlights included calling and circling ravens, a lone Hermit Thrush, a Great Blue Heron hunting rodents in a field, 2 Pine Siskins, and several flyover Bluebirds.

Lake Arrowhead is one of several private year-round residential lake communities in Denville Township. In 1925 the Arthur D Crane Company dammed a pond using its own natural springs forming a body of water to be called Arrowhead Lake. Today Lake Arrowhead borders both Mountain Lakes and Denville and contains two additional lakes named the Bay of Deep Water and Great Bay.
In this video we take a short but steep and scenic hike in Washington Township in western Morris County New Jersey. Cataract Park’s wooded trails lead to cascading waterfalls and a cave that was once known as Young’s Mine.
