For the best birding in southern Ocean County, New Jersey

The Southern Ocean Birding Group (SOBG) was organized in September 2008 for the enjoyment and education of its members and guests.  We are the only birding group located in Ocean County.  The SOBG has monthly field trips and presents educational programs at our monthly meetings at the Tuckerton Seaport in Tuckerton, New Jersey, that are open and free to the public.
Our group participates annually in the Christmas Bird Count (CBC), which is sponsored by the National Audubon Society.  The CBC provides data about the health and well-being of our bird populations.  Annually, the CBC reports over 100 different species in our area.
We invite you to come visit us and experience the joy of birding!

Bonaparte's Gull

Our home territory extends from Barnegat Inlet to Great Bay to Bass River State Park in New Jersey.  This area is on the Atlantic Flyway and a prime location for a wide variety of birds from diving sea ducks to forest song birds.
