We had a great walk with the Bergen County Audubon Society in Ridgefield today — nice weather, nice birds and a nice bunch of people.
Don Torino of BCAS and Karen Riede of the Ridgefield Nature Center led the way.
Highlights included a Hermit Thrush at the Ridgefield Nature Center, lots of Ruby-crowned Kinglets at the Ridgefield Community Garden, the delightful (but loud) Monk Parakeets of Railroad Avenue (below), plus an American Kestrel (left) and (immature) White-crowned Sparrows at the Skeetkill Creek Marsh.
Attendance was more than two-dozen birders of all experience levels.
Thanks to all who participated, and a special thanks to Bruce and Karen Riede for all their help.
