Christmas Bird Count Highlights

The Meadowlands Commission and friends participated in Lower Hudson Christmas Bird Count yesterday, IMG_9499visiting natural areas and landfills in Carlstadt, Lundhurst, North Arlington and Kearny. 

Our group counted 56 species. Highlights included a Horned Grebe (above) on the outskirts of DeKorte Park, dozens of migrating Common Megansers, an American Kestrel and our fairly reliable Bald Eagles.

We had two eagles (an adult and a juvenile) on our portion of the count yesterday.
