Happy New Year!
The Meadowlands Commission is kicking off 2009 with a Snowy Owl watch/DeKorte Park guided walk on Monday, Jan. 5.
Two Snowy Owls have been in the Meadowlands since Dec. 23, and we are hoping they hang around for another week (at least)…
NJMC naturalist Mike Newhouse, who heads the popular Harrier Meadow walks, will be the leader.
We will meet at DeKorte Park at 9 a.m. and, if the owls are still here, we’ll drive over to see them with spotting scopes and also look for Rough-legged Hawks (pictured above), Northern Harriers, and the local Redtails and Kestrel.

We will also DeKorte to see what ducks are out and about – including the raft of Canvasbacks and the sometimes-seen Eurasian Green-winged Teal.
We are also open to suggestions. We hope to be finished by 10:30 a.m.
If it’s raining, the walk will be held Tuesday, Jan. 6, at 9 a.m. rain or shine.
Feel free to pass the word.
Please RSVP us so we know how many people to expect.
