The Laurel Hill Walk on Sunday at 10 a.m. promises to be nifty — we checked out the Common Ravens' nest on Friday, and it appears to be a full house.
We are unsure how many nestlings there are, but there have been reports of at least three.
The nest is so crowded that one of the parents sits on the ledge outside the nest. We'll have spotting scopes on Sunday so everyone will get great views.
Details on the walk follow — be sure to rsvp.

First-Sunday-of-the Month Walk with Bergen County Audubon Society
This free two-hour nature walk at Laurel Hill County Park will take a look at the nesting Common Ravens and their hatchlings, a nearby Osprey nest, plus all the neat birds hanging out along the Hackensack River. We’ll meet at the parking lot beneath the cliffs at 10 a.m. (directions are on meadowblog.net in the left-hand column), or you can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst at 9:40 a.m. and we can carpool. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute updates and weather advisories.
