Everybody’s Raven…

    … about this morning's First Sunday of the Month nature walk at Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus.
   Twenty birders got great views of the entire family of nesting Common Ravens, plus dozens of other birds, a Green Darner or two, and at least three butterfly species. 
   Full report later this week.

White Pelican Seen Near Laurel Hill

    An American White Pelican was reported Saturday 7 p.m. in the impoundments west of Laurel Hill Park.
   The JerseyBirds report by Tim Lenz of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology said that he and two colleagues "all saw it well through scopes and Marshall [Iliff] got distant images. The small but prominent bill process eliminates Old World white pelicans from contention."
  Tim and his colleagues looked again for the bird today unsuccessfully, and it was not seen during today's Laurel Hill nature walk.
