NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse and Chris Takacs saw this American Avocet in Harrier Meadow today.
Harrier Meadow is typically closed to the public but if the bird continues, we will have an informal walk tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10 a.m.
If the bird is not there, we will post something on the blog by 9:15 a.m. You can also call NJMC staffer Jim Wright's cellphone at 201-469-7349 after 9 a.m.
We had the Avocet at about 6:30 this evening in the Saw Mill Creek Mud Flats, south of the Trasco Trail – great, long looks, and watched it fly away once the flats were totally covered with water – beautiful!
That’s great. Thank you for the report. Will be checking Harrier Meadow soon…
Why do Avocets ALWAYS show up at DeKorte on days I have to work!! 🙁
