The Mother’s Day Walk

Flicker 051009
    Thanks to all who joined us on the first annual Mother's Day Walk in Ridgefield.
    The weather was great, and so was the walk.
  Ridgefield group   Roughly 20 people visited the thriving Ridgefield Nature Center, the Monk Parakeet Colony nearby, and the Skeetkill Creek Creek Marsh.

   Highlights included Black-throated Blue Warbler, Black-and-White Warbler, several Northern Flickers (above), more than two-dozen nest-building Monk Parakeets, and a Short-billed Dowitcher.
    The Meadowlands Commission would like to thank Bruce and Karen Riede of the Ridgefield Environmental Commission and Don Torino and Bergen County Audubon for hosting the event with us.
