Above is one of our better shots of the Blackburnian Warbler seen on our walk and cleanup at Losen Slote Park in Little Ferry on Sunday. The bird could quite possibly be in the photo. If you stare long enough, you might be able to hear it. Or not.
We did get better views of lots of birds — including Black-and-white warblers, a Baltimore Oriole, an Ovenbird and more. We also picked up several trashbags' of litter and enjoyed an outstanding May morning.
