Twelve of us were at DeKorte for the First Sunday of the Month bird walk. We had a lot of great looks at neat birds, including several Northern Harriers, Common Mergs, Hoodies, Gadwall and Canvasbacks (but no Pintails).
We had the best views of the harriers (left and above) and the Common Mergs from inside the Visitor Center at the Meadowlands Environment Center. (Is that cheating?)
Walk leader and early birder Don Torino also had Bald Eagle and Peregrine Falcon by arriving early.
We also looked for the shrike (unsuccessfully) on Disposal Road but we saw many American Coots by the Kearny Marsh (birders are pictured
Thanks to all who participated!
