Plenty of highlights on yesterday's walk — in addition to the banding demo by the NJMC's Mike Newhouse (above left, with a young birder named Nestor), which provided great looks at Yellow-breasted Chats, warblers, catbirds and more.
We saw a distant Coyote walking along the edge of a distant 1-E Landfill, a flock of Greater Yellowlegs, great looks at the American Avocet, which has been here for three weeks now, a Prairie Warbler and a Pied-billed Grebe.
Did not see the Caspian Tern that has been hanging out here.
Only a few American Kestrels around, but we had up-close views of one as Mike banded it (left).
Full list follows. (Thanks again to all our participants!)
