Meadowlands Festival of Birding Report

IMG_6795      This weekend's Meadowlands Festival of Birding was a big hit.

      Edna Duffy of Secaucus summed up the first day nicely (Thanks, Edna!):

      "Two-hundred-plus people enjoyed themselves [Saturday] at the sixth annual Meadowlands Birding Festival.

   "Great birds, including flyover Hudsonian Godwit and Red-necked Phalarope. Early boat ride this morning on the Hackensack River had a Bald Eagle steal a fish from an Osprey. Yellow-Crowned Night-Herons and Common Moorhen seen as well."

     Staff Writer Rich Cowen of The Record had a great story on the event in the Sunday paper.

     We especially loved this part: "Birds know — and so do bird-watchers — that the best place to escape all that concrete, steel and glass is the 8,000-acre swamp-turned-sanctuary that we call the Meadowlands. This green oasis, a favorite stopover for nearly 300 species of birds, on Saturday played host to the sixth annual New Jersey Meadowlands Festival of Birding."

    A big "Thank-you" goes out to all who participated.
