About 20 of us braved the light drizzle to see a bird-banding domonstration and take a delightful (if a tad buggy) walk in Harrier Meadow.
The Palm Warbler (above) was one of the banding highlights provided by Mike Newhouse, naturalist and field biologist for the N.J. Meadowlands Commission. We also had an American Kestrel and a Y.B. Chat.
On the walk itself, highlights included our friend the American Avocet, a Pied-billed Grebe, a Prairie Warbler and more. We'll print the full list tomorrow. (Thanks to Mike and all who participated in today's walk!)
