Neil Maruca sez: "Meadowlands was birdy, but not a lot of rarities. Highlights:
Mehrhof Pond– 520 Ruddy Ducks, 11 Ring Necks, 8 Lesser Scaup, 6 Hooded
Valley Brook Rd– Red Shouldered Hawk
DeKorte– Dowitcher sp. (probably Long Billed), 30 Greater Yellowlegs, 120
Kearny East-100+ Pintails, Great Cormorant
Ray Duffy sez: "I got my first fall Fox Sparrows in Schmidt’s today (Saturday). There were 2 that I saw and I think a third calling."
Julie McCall reports: "There was a very cooperative brant (presumably the same bird from the earlier post?) there again today (Saturday), keeping company with a pair of Canada Geese. Closest look I've gotten of one. They're quite pretty birds."
These guys are typically gone by now, but one was straggling around DeKorte late last week. He clearly has seen better days. (It's a "he" because of the solitary spot on each wing.)
