Shorebird Pool Is Lower for the Next Week

IMG_1097-2 To help migrating birds (and non-migratory birders), the Meadowlands Commission has lowered the Shorebird Pool at DeKorte Park for the following week.

When water levels were lowered earlier this spring, we drew Soras, Virginia Rail, Common Moorhens, a Red-necked Phalarope and more.

The extended mud flats might bring some more nifty birds, so be on the look out — and report (and photograph) any good sightings to Jim Wright here.
