We saw this immature tricolored heron walking down the boardwalk at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst.
More on tricolored herons here.
Will post more pix of this cute little guy on Friday.
It’s not too early to mark your calendar for the 5th annual Meadowlands Festival of Birding, sponsored by the Meadowlands Commission.
The event is set for Saturday Sept. 13 and Sunday Sept. 14. (Above photo was taken at the Kearny Marsh.)

We saw these birds in the Kingsland Tidal Impoundment Wednesday while walking along the Marsh Discovery Trail. Could not get closer, but the educated guess is that they are short-billed dowitchers.
They have also been seen at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus.
If you thave any significant sightings anywhere in the Meadowlands, please let us know. If you would be willing to share a digital photo or two, even better.
