The race for the most species for 2012 is too close to call.
We'll post the list tomorrow morning. Thanks to all who are participating!
Ray Duffy phoned to say he had many warblers in Schmidt's Woods in Secaucus this morning, including Hooded, Northern parula, Black-and-white, and Redstart, plus a Great Crested Flycatcher and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. (Thanks, Ray!)
Directions to Schmidt's Wood are on the left-hand side of this blog.
Everyone seemed to have a great time, and a few eagle-eyed participants went home with some very nice door prizes supplied by the national Football League — including two helmets autographed by Colts rookie QB Andrew Luck.
A link to a photo gallery of the event from The Jersey Journal is here.
The full list of the 35 birds seen on the walk follows. (Thanks to Julie McCall and Denise Farrell!)
"Keep you eye out on Valley Brook Ave … I've seen a young Red-tailed Hawk several times recently hanging around the road side.
"This young guy was terribly cooperative on Sunday afternoon. He just sat and posed for several dozen portraits … He didn't seem to care that I was about 30 feet away." (Thanks, Roy!)
