Due to the continuing icy conditions at Mill Creek Marsh, this weekend’s First-Sunday-of the-Month walk will be at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. The walk runs from at 10 a.m. to noon. The MEC restrooms will be open for 15 minutes before and after the walk.
Target birds: Snowy Owls, miscellaneous ducks and raptors.
Full listing follows. Continue reading
On a visit to a Carlstadt marsh last week, we encountered two Common Ravens.
One was eating something on the snow, and the other was perched in a tree. The one perched in the tree appeared to break off a small branch and fly toward the Hackensack River. The other followed shortly thereafter.
If you see any raven nest-building going on at Laurel Hill or elsewhere in the Meadowlands, please contact this blog.
To see what might be seen March in the Meadowlands, we thought we’d run some highlights from March 2102 and showcase some of the great photography that folks have contributed.
