The program begins at 10 a.m.with a short talk, "Winter Raptors of the Meadowlands," by the NJMC's Jim Wright.
The talk will be followed by a guided walk in search of winter waterfowl and those raptors.
On our last DeKorte walk we had Peregrine Falcon, Redtail, Northern Harrier and Sharpie, and we had American Kestrel on Disposal Road today.
At DeKorte are currently seeing plenty of Ruddies, Northern Pintails, Northern Shovelers, Green-winged Teal, Black Ducks, and Bufflehead, and the Canvasbacks should be back soon.
The walk is sponsored by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society.
