This year's Harbor Herons Project surveys in the Meadowlands are now completed, and the volunteers who kept regular tabs on all these magnificent birds can catch their breath.
It was a real team effort. Credit goes to Nellie Tsipoura of the New Jersey Audubon Society for running the volunteer effort, Kate Ruskin of NJAS for coordinating it.
