Don't miss our next guided walk — at Laurel Hill in Secaucus at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2. We'll look for Ospreys and other raptors, waterfowl, shorebirds and whatever else turns up. The walk is brought to you by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.
A visit earlier in the week brought lots of herons and egrets and cormorants along the Hackensack River.
