Kevin Karlson Day: The Bird List


   Thanks again to everyone who took a flier on the weather and attended "A Day With Kevin Karlson" on Saturday.

   We had a spot or two of rain during the morning walk, IMG_3272 but we did have enough mudflats in the Shorebird Pool to get a lot of peeps and several other good birds.

   Thanks again to Kevin Karlson, ably assisted by NJMC Naturalist Michael Newhouse, NYC "Mega-birder" Lloyd Spitalnik and Ace North Jersey birder Rob Fanning.
