The NJMC and BCAS had a great Mother's Day walk in Ridgefield, with highlights that included an annoying elusive male
Scarlet Tanager (hence the above) and 42 other species.
At Ridgefield Nature Center, we had at least nine warbler species. At Skeetkill Creek Marsh, we had all five swallow species. And at Railroad Avenue, we had two dozen Monk Parakeets (of course).
We even had some nice TV coverage from Channel One.
Full list and more photos follow — holler if you have any additions/corrections.
