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
