Ron Shields reports:
"I spent early Wednesday evening with another photographer on Disposal Road.
"In less than one hour, we had an adult Bald Eagle, two Ospreys, numerous Northern Harriers, possibly a Cooper's Hawk, three Peregrines and several Kestrels. The only thing missing was the kitchen sink." (Thanks, Ron!)
Ramon Gomez just called in from Losen Slote Park in Little Ferry to report he is seeing Pine Siskins, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Purple Finches, Yellow-rumps and other warblers, and a pair of Wood Ducks.
He says the most activity is in the field after you leave the woods from the main entrance in Little Ferry.

Chris Takacs passed along these two photos from the NJMC's banding project.
Can you ID them? Could they be … vireos?
Answers follow. (Thanks, Chris, and the great banding team!)
