From Disposal Road in North Arlington around 9 this morning, we saw three harriers working the Erie Landfill.
When we looked over the photographs we took (from quite a distance), we noticed a falcon perched on a rock on top of the landfill.
Not long after, NJMC naturalist Michael Newhouse saw seven distant accipiters gaining altitude to the south of Harrier Meadow.
With winds out of the northwest this morning, today should be a solid migration day.
Footnote: Just before lunch, we saw two ospreys hunting the tidal impoundment by NJMC Headqurters in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst.
A great raptor morning.
