Thanks to the two dozen folks who joined the Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society on our First Sunday of the Month walk at Laurel Hill — topped off by looks at the American Avocet at Harrier Meadow.
What an unbelieveable day, beginning with a stream of Northern Flickers that totaled more than 100, endless migrating Monarchs (above), a Snow Goose found by Julie McCall, at least seven Bald Eagles, two Common Ravens, a few Peregrines (including the one at left), an American Kestrel, Lots of egrets, yellowlegs … well, you get the idea.
We'll post a full list later this week.
Ray Duffy had a Snow Goose at Laurel Hill on 9/22. If it’s the same one – I would assume that it is – that’s 10 days… Maybe it will go for the Avocet’s record? 😉
