Third-Tuesday Walk at Harrier


    This week's (rainy) Harrier Meadow walk featured a bird-banding demonstration by NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse and his band of banders.
   Highlights included male and female Red-winged Blackbirds (above) and a mysterious flycatcher thought to be a least.
   The walk itself proved to be Shorebird Central, including three– count 'em, three — types of plovers (Black-bellied in breeding plumage, Semi-palmated and Killdeer), Spotted and Least Sandpiper, and Short-billed Dowitcher. The walk was sponsored by the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.
