Here Comes the Sun

   A colleague at the Meadowlands Commission has been bugging us for a "sunny" photo for him to use as a screensaver. Today  was finally sunny enough to help the poor guy out.
  We hope he likes the photo.

Changing seasons

    We are seeing some changes in bird activity in the Meadowlands — lots more Red-winged Blackbirds, for example, and far fewer Rough-legged Hawks (above).

   In the DeKorte impoundments, we saw the usual raft of Canvasbacks, many Mallards, several Buffleheads, a few Black Ducks and some Northern Pintails.
