What a Walk at DeKorte!

Despite the gloomy forecast, 11 of us went for a IMG_3753walk that turned out just fine. Highlights included a Brown Creeper, a  Redtail up-close, a Hermit Thrush, Black-crowned Night Heron, White-crowned Sparrows and a bazillion Yellow-rumps.

We will post the full list later in the week, including a surprisingly nifty shot of the Brown Creeper in action.

The free walk was sponsored by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.

Here's a bit of a mystery, as IDs of perched IMG_3408raptors can be.

   We photographed this guy on Valley Brook Ave, yesterday morning.

We are thinking Cooper's Hawk, because of the rounded tail and general shape and size.

What do you think?
