Bird Report 032211: Laurel Hill

Ray Duffy reports:

"I visited Laurel HIll this evening before sunset but left before the usual woodcock display time.  I found my first-of-the-year-for-the-Meadowlands Great Egret as two were perched on trees black-crowned night-herons roost in near the entrance of the park. 

"I got my FOY  osprey flew along Laurel Hill around 7pm and glided off.  I was surprised he flew so near the raven nest and didn't pick up an escort."

(Thanks, Ray!)

"Quite a surprise for such a dismal day!

"Photographed at the Kearny Marsh around 4 p.m. Monday."

(Thanks, Ron!)

NJMC staff also had excellent looks at an adult  Bald Eagle over Mill Creek Point on Tuesday morning.
