Ray Duffy reports:
I took a walk around Laurel Hill Saturday afternoon.
- I had a male Clapper Rail calling in the phragmites behind the Xchange. I got a brief look at him on the edge of the vegetation but it was calling quite loudly.
– One of the Osprey flew in to the park and picked up stuff for the nest by the train bridge.
– I was watching the raven nest, and I saw at least 3 young in the nest. I'll keep watching, hopefully there are more.
I also had my first of season for the Meadowlands chipping sparrow.
