After much back and forth concerning this “mystery bird” photographed on the Birding By Boat trip yesterday, it was decided that it is an Immature Female Hooded Merganser. We’ll have more Birding By Boat photos tomorrow, along with Don Torino’s latest Life in the Meadowlands column!
Regina Geoghan sent this collage of butterflies taken Monday at DeKorte. Wonder how they will fare with all the humidity and rain coming our way?
Due to cloud conditions, tonight’s (Aug. 10) open public viewing session at the William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst has been cancelled. The next open public viewing night is Wednesday, Aug. 17, from 8:30 to 10:30 pm
Thanks to Ron Shields for keeping us updated on the shorebird action at the Kearny Marsh. Enjoy these wonderful photos!
By all accounts yesterday’s Birding By Boat Trip with the BCAS was a great success, with many birds scene from the unique vantage point of our pontoon boats. Below are some photos from the trip by Jimmy Macaluso, including Caspians, Peregrines and the Bernsteins, three generations of birders!
