Ron Shields was kind enough to grace us with a series of spectacular eagle shots from throughout the summer. Ron writes: “This summer several eagles graced the Kearny Marsh with their presence, including this immature bird.
“I would like to think that the pictured eagle is a first year bird and possibly from the new nest at Kearny Point. Being a Hudson County resident, that would be simply terrific! The eagle was often found on the stumps of old cedar trees in the middle of the marsh. His flight was often impeded by attacks from red winged blackbirds and territorial ospreys.”
