Join the Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society on Sunday (Dec. 1) at 10 a.m. for the NJMC’s Jim Wright’s short talk and slide show on “Winter Raptors of the Meadowlands” in the Meadowlands Environment Center, followed by a walk along nearby Disposal Road, Raptor Capital of the known universe (give or take).
Following the walk, the BCAS’ Don Torino will give a talk and side show on Losen Slote Creek Park in Little Ferry, arguably the eighth Wonder of the World.
Full listing follows. Continue reading
We had 25 folks and at least 28 species of birds today’s walk. Great group, great weather, great time. (Thanks to all.)

Looking for a great way to beat the “Black Friday” day-after-Thanksgiving shopping crush and work off that turkey dinner?
Visit the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst for a free “Green Friday” guided nature walk beginning at noon inside the Meadowlands Environment Center.
The Nov. 29 event, sponsored by the NJMC and the Bergen County Audubon Society, will feature a walk on DeKorte Park’s Shore Walk and Lyndhurst Nature Reserve.
The walk runs from noon to to 1:45 p.m. Bring a brownbag lunch if you like.
For more information, contact Jim Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-460-2002, or go the NJMC nature blog, www.meadowblog.net. Bad weather cancels.
Wanted to see if there was any raptor action on Disposal Road this a.m. Didn’t stay long but saw a Snow Goose migrating with a flock of Canadas, and also had an Eastern Meadowlark perched behind the detention pond by the Carillon.
Lousy (and distant photo) of meadowlark is on right. If someone could please get a better one…
