What can you say when the first pontoon boat cruise of the day turns up a Whimbrel and Am. Golden Plover?
When the first DeKorte walk turns up Soras and other great birds?
When the Harrier Meadow bird-banding demonstration includes Sacrlet Tanager, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and warblers a-plenty?
The turnout was enthusiastic, and the weather was great.
We will post more pix and a full list in the coming week.
The event was run by Hackensack Riverkeeper and New Jersey Audubon Society and hosted by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission.
