Harrier Meadow Walk Tomorrow

   Tomorrow's Harrier Meadow Walk and Bird-banding Demo is all set for 10 a.m, though be aware that the bird-banding has been a tad slow.
   The good news is that an American Kestrel can easily be seen working the top of the (closed) Erie Landfill, and a pair of Ospreys have been fishing and gathering nesting materials nearby at DeKorte. Hope to see you tomorrow.
   Details on the walk follow, but be aware you will need to sign a standard release to visit this site, which is usually closed to the public.You can download the release here: Download HARRIER Release.

You can also meet us at the visitors’  parking lot at DeKorte  Park in Lyndhurst at 9:45 a.m. and we can car-pool. You must sign a release to visit the site. The walk is run by the N.J.
