Friday a.m. Disposal Road Action

A trip down Disposal Road and back this morning found:

*A Peregrine (zipping between Harrier Meadow and Disposal Road)

*2 Red-tails kiting or perched

*A  female N. Harrier hunting on Kingsland near the Carillon

*A perched Am. Kestrel on Kingsland up the hill from Detention Pond

* A Sharpie perched on Kingsland near DeKorte

* 2 Common Ravens by the entrance to DeKorte.

Strong winds seemed to help. Will put battery back in camera next time.


Looking Back: February 2012

One ugly fellow
The year 2012 in the Meadowlands marked the opening of River Barge Park in Carlstadt, Butterfly Day and Moth Night, lots of great nature sightings, our continued partnership with Bergen County Audubon Society, and (alas) Hurricane Sandy.

We thought we'd remember 2012 by looking back, month by month.

Here are some highlights from February (click on the text to link to the post):
