We'll check Disposal Road for an array of raptors, from Rough-legs to Northern Harriers (like the Gray Ghost, above, photographed last weekend by Ron Shields) to American Kestrels — and we'll look for ducks as well.
The walk is brought to you by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.
The Rough-leg at left, photographed earlier this month, is a frequent flier — we can distinguish it by the missing tail feather.
Stay tuned to this blog for the latest Meadowlands raptor sightings. Details follow.
