The Meadowlands Festival of Birding had a perfect alignment of the stars this weekend — great birds and great birders (and, on Saturday, great weather).
All of this combined for some great sightings, including Whimbrel, Clapper Rail, Sora Rail, Golden Plover and more.
(The Golden Plover pictured here was photographed at Mill Creek Marsh on Saturday by Kevin Bolton, using a digiscope. Thanks, Kevin!)
