Cormorant Beats the Heat

   In recent weeks we have run posts about a Double-crested Cormorant being rescued after getting its neck stuck in a tidegate (here) and battling an eel on the Hackensack River (here).
   Thought we'd post a nice shot of one just cooling off in one of the tidal pools at Harrier Meadow today. They're not always getting into trouble.

ID that Dove!


     A bit of controversy has developed over this dove, seen outside Harrier Meadow just before and after yesterday's walk.   

     One school of thought says that it is a released Turtle Dove. The other says it is a Eurasian Collared Dove. 

    More on both birds here.
