Top o’ Kingsland Guided Event!

Harman Kingsland-001
We had a full house for our first-ever birding/photography event atop the closed Kingsland Landfill. 

We enjoyed the great 360-degree views of the Meadowlands and beyond (photo above by Bruce Harman), and we saw quite a few raptors — though none as close as we would have liked.

Lots of American Kestrels perched and flying. (Dennis Cheeseman photographed the one below.) 

The event was sponsored by the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. If you want to be notified of future Kingsland events, e-mail Jim Wright at jim.wright (at) njmeadowlands.gov, substituting @ for (at)…

We will post a full bird list and another pic or two tomorrow if we can.

(Thanks, Bruce and Dennis, and thanks to all who participated!)

Just a reminder that except for these guided events, the Kingsland landfill is absolutely off-limits to the public for safety reasons!

If you see anyone trespassing, call the site's security office at 201-896-8100.
