The Meadowlands Commission is pleased to announce another Raptor Ramble and Duck Walk on Monday, Jan. 26, at 10 a.m.
We are also planning a Great Backyard Bird Count Walk and Coffee Hour for Friday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m., so mark your calendars – more information will follow in a later blog post. (And we will be hosting Saturday and Sunday events this spring.)
On the Jan. 26 walk, NJMC naturalist Mike Newhouse will lead the way. We will meet at DeKorte Park.
Not far from DeKorte, we’ll look for Rough-legged Hawks, Northern Harriers, owls (from a distance, of course), and the local Redtails and Kestrel.

We will then return to DeKorte to see what ducks are out and about – including the raft of Canvasbacks and possibly the Eurasian Green-winged Teal.
We are also open to suggestions. We hope to be finished by 11:30 a.m.
If it’s raining, the walk will be held Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 10 a.m. rain or shine. Feel free to pass the word.
Please RSVP through this e-mail address just so we know how many people to expect. Hope to see you on the 26th.
And watch this blog for late cancellations due to weather.
