On Tuesday, Oct. 20, our free Third-Tuesday-of-the month Bird Walk with Bergen County Audubon Society starts at the Ridgefield Environment Center in Ridgefield and runs from 10 a.m. to noon. After a walk around the nature center, we will drive to Skeetkill Creek Marsh (above) to do some more birding. Along the way, we will stop to see how the Ridgefield Monk Parakeets are doing on Railroad Avenue.
