Kearny March was hopping this morning, with 250 Ruddies rafting to the south of Gunnell Oval. Lots of American Coots and Northern Shovelers as well. Ron Shields reports seeing a Pied-billed Grebe chilling with the Ruddies the other day.
We're going to see how many birds species we can see in Bergen County on Saturday, May 14. Trouble is, we need a name — and we need your input.
So far, two names have been bandied about. Sorry to say, we are not convinced that either gets the job done. Can you come up with a better name for our eagle-eyed crew?
Here are the choices:
A.) The Great Bergen Herons
B.) The Ramapo Raptors
C. Your choice here.
A few Tree Swallows arrived to inspect their new digs but we did not see anyone move in. We did see (and hear) a Peregrine Falcon zip past the boat on a strafing run toward Green-winged Teal, a Bald Eagle, a Red-Tail and a Northern Harrier.
