While at Harrier Meadow on Wednesday, we saw this Northern Mockingbird taking a drink from one of the ponds. we thought we detected a band on its right leg.
Sure enough, an enlargement of his right foot showed that it was banded — most likely one of the mockingbirds that we banded last year.
Some of our banded birds have migrated thousands of miles.
Others, like this mocker (and several of his buddies), have stayed around here all along.
The natural beauty of the Meadowlands as captured by Rutherford photographers Melissa Buesing and Jonathan Glick will be on display during March at the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s (NJMC) Flyway Gallery.
The show, “Meadowlands – Recent Works by Melissa Buesing and Jonathan Glick,” runs from March 2 through March 30.
A reception for the artists is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 8.
