We have seen some great success stories in the birding world in recent years. The Bald Eagle has made a triumphant recovery from the edge of extinction. The Peregrine Falcon, once gone from the Eastern United States, has now returned. The Osprey has become almost common place where it once had disappeared.
Yet today there are many birds much less known that are in serious decline. One of those special birds has become close to my heart: The Rusty Blackbird.
Join the Bergen County Audubon Society for a guided walk through DeKorte Park this Sunday (Dec. 2) from 10 a.m. to noon! They’ll be looking for hawks, ducks, sparrows and more. For information contact Don Torino at email@example.com or 201-230-4983
