This Black Skimmer showed up in the back of the Shorebird Pool by the Transco Trail around 12:30 this afternoon. It then flew around the East Pool of the Shorebird Pool (aka the Kingsland Impoundment) for several minutes.
This is prime time for these guys, and we have our first anniverary walk with Bergen County Audubon Society at DeKorte Park at 10 a.m.
On the first walk the Meadowlands Commission did BCAS last Fourth of July Weekend, we had great looks at a Black Skimmer — and an Osprey catching a fish.
