Bird Report 070111: Laurel Hill

Rick Radis reports:

"We spent an enjoyable 2 hours this morning watching 3 Peregrine Falcons–2 adults and a juvenile–diving on and generally harassing the family group of 5 ravens at Laurel Hill, near the baseball field.

"Also around were Least, Common, and Forster's Terns, Osprey, and an adult Yellow-crowned Night Heron."

(Thanks, Rick!)

Flyway Gallery: July

Nature photography by Herb Houghton continues through the end of July at the Flyway Gallery in the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park. 

There's a reception for the photographer this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can meet Herb and find out how he gets those incredible shots.

There's also a free nature walk at 10 a.m. on Sunday at DeKorte Park. Hope to see you there!

Blue Grosbeak!


Blue Grosbeaks have not been seen IMG_9413much in the Meadowlands for years.

We saw something bright blue  while on another assignment yesterday and took a few photos before moving on.

When we downloaded the pix, we realized it was a Blue Grosbeak.

More on Blue Grosbeaks here.
