Tuesday’s Walk: Harrier Meadow and Bird-banding Update

    We are all set for tomorrow's 10 a.m. Harrier Meadow walk and bird-banding demo, with one small change.
   We had planned to allow some participants to park in DeKorte Park by 9:40 a.m. and car-pool to Harrier Meadow (about a half-mile away), but DeKorte is hosting a solar-energy conference and parking will be at a premium.
   If you want to carpool, please meet us outside DeKorte at the entrance to Disposal Road by 9:40 a.m.
   Above is an Indigo Bunting banded this morning.
   The walk is rain or shine. The bird banding may be weather-dependent.
   Full listing follows.

Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month Bird Walk with NJMC and BCAS

This free two-hour guided nature walk will take us to the legendary Harrier Meadow  in North Arlington, beginning with a bird-banding demonstration. The 70-acre site, usually off limits to the public, features ponds and tidal impoundments and birds aplenty.  We have seen Blue-winged Teal and a Little Blue Heron this week, plus plenty of shorebirds. We meet at 10 a.m. at the entrance to Harrier Meadow on Disposal Road. You can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte  Park in Lyndhurst at 9:45 a.m. and we can carpool. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute updates and weather advisories. To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at greatauk4@aol.com or 201-636-4022.
