Today’s Birding-By-Boat Trip

   To celebrate our first anniversary of Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month bird walks, we had a birding-by-boat trip on the Hackensack River today, and did the birds show up to celebrate with us.
    A sampling: Eight Ospreys, a Peregrine Falcon, umpteen Black-crowned (below) and Yellow-crowned Night Herons, Forster's Terns, and plenty of yellowlegs and other sandpipers (bottom). Not to mention too many Diamondback Terrapins to count (right).  
    Bird and terrapin pix below were taken by R.T. Geoghan.   (Thanks, R.T.!) 
  Will post more pix and maybe a full list tomorrow.
   We are thinking of making this a monthly trip during the summer. E-mail us here if you like the idea.
