Black-crowned Night Herons

IMG_7296   Chris Takacs and Dale Jankowski have seen Black-crowned Night Herons by the Marsh Discovery Trail in DeKorte Park — a nice winter find.

   These birds are considered a threatened species in New Jersey.

  We photographed this one today –  tucked away with a buddy.

Nice Post on Looking for the Shrike

      The New Jersey Outdoors Blog had a nice post about looking for the Northern Shrike on Disposal Road, and how tough it can be to see it. 

   We especially liked this line: "It's a shame the day was such a wash, but the Meadowlands is definitely one of the hidden gems of New Jersey."
