Bonus Nature Walk This Sunday: Rough-legs

IMG_0247 With the Rough-legs making almost daily appearances on Disposal Road, we thought we would add a free nature walk for this Sunday, Jan. 23, at 10 a.m. at DeKorte Park.

We'll check Disposal Road for an array of raptors, from Rough-legs to Northern Harriers to American Kestrels — and we'll do a quick look for ducks as well.

The walk is brought to you by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.

The Rough-leg at left, photographed two weeks ago today, is a frequent flier — we can distinguish it by the missing tail feather.

Stay tuned to this blog for the latest Meadowlands raptor sightings.

Details of the walk follow.
